The Kashmir Files stars Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi, Darshan Kumaar and others. It is based on the exodus and killings of Kashmiri Pandits in the valley in the 1990s. It tells the fictional story of a student who discovers his Kashmiri Hindu parents were killed by Islamist militants - and not in an accident as his grandfather told him.
Several states including Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Tripura, Karnataka, Goa, Haryana, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh have declared the film "tax-free".
The Kashmir Files comes recommended by the Prime Minister himself. PM Narendra Modi spoke about the film at a recent event. He said it showed the truth and that vested interests were running a campaign to discredit it. "They are shocked, that the truth that was hidden for so many years is out and is backed by facts," he said, without clarifying to whom he was referring to.
