Madhya Pradesh cops to get permission to watch movie


“The Kashmir Files” stars Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Joshi.


The Madhya Pradesh government today announced that police officers in the state will be allowed to watch the recently released film ‘The Kashmir Files’.

Home Minister Narottam Mishra told reporters that police officers in Madhya Pradesh would be allowed to watch ‘The Kashmir Files’ film. He said that instructions to that effect have been given to Police Director General Sudhir Saxena.

“I just told the DGP to grant permission whenever a state policeman wants to go and watch ‘The Kashmir Files’ with his family,” Mr Mishra told reporters.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday exempted “The Kashmir Files” from entertainment tax in Madhya Pradesh. He said the government decided to make it tax free because the movie deserves to be watched by as many people as possible.

The film, directed and written by Vivek Agnihotri, depicts the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the state after the systematic killings of people from the community by Pakistani-backed terrorists.

The film stars Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty, and Pallavi Joshi, among others.

Mr Chouhan said the film is a “harrowing narrative of the pain, suffering, struggle and trauma faced by Kashmiri Hindus in the 1990s”.

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has also said that ‘The Kashmir Files’ will be screened with the maximum broadcasts possible in the state.
