Tampa, Florida: In a stirring speech director Vivek Agnihotri called out both China and Pakistan for the plight of Kashmir. Agnihotri said that Kashmir suffered because the natives were othered by the invaders.
Agnihotri made a heartfelt speech on the occasion of the exclusive pre-release preview of his upcoming movie, ‘The Kashmir Files’ in the United States. One of the pre-release previews of ‘The Kashmiri Files’ was held at Citrus Park Town Center Mall in Tampa, Florida.
“We are the only society in the world where we worship 3 Goddesses – Laxmi, Durga, and Saraswati. Saraswati is the Goddess of wisdom, knowledge, poetry, art, and literature. Her abode is Kashmir.” He lamented how once the abode of wisdom has now no trace of poetry or art. “Destruction of Kashmir is the destruction of knowledge. Humanity is being destroyed by China-funded and Pakistan-funded terrorism.”
The script of the movie has been written by writer-director Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Tej Narayan Agarwal, Abhishek Agarwal, and Pallavi Joshi. The film features Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi, and Puneet Issar, along with Darshan Kumar, Chinmay Mandlekar, Bhasha Sumbli.
The event in Tampa was organized by the ‘I am Buddha Foundation’ in partnership with the Global Kashmiri Pandit diaspora.
