‘The Kashmir Files’ By Anupam Kher Becomes Tax-free In Karnataka For The Fourth Time

The Kashmir Files, directed and produced by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, is now tax-free in Karnataka to encourage more people to see the Anupam Kher-starrer film. Previously, the film had been tax-free in Gujarat, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh. According to reports, that’s not all; several other states, including Maharashtra, may follow suit shortly.

According to Chief Minister Basavaraj S Bommai, the Agnihotri-directed film is a “blood-curdling, emotional, and honest tale of the plight of Kashmiri Pandits from their ancestral country.”

The States

The state administration has chosen to make The Kashmir Files tax-free to encourage people to watch it, according to Bommai’s tweet.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar also viewed the film and shared his memories of working in the Kashmir Valley in 1990 on Twitter. The film is a “living and poignant picture of the human catastrophe that occurred in the Kashmir Valley in 1990,” according to Khattar. He tweeted:

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Bhupesh Patel and Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupesh Patel have stated that the Anupam Kher-starrer would be tax-free in their states.

Meanwhile, the film’s creators visited Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday, including director Agnihotri, his wife, award-winning national actress Pallavi Joshi, and producer Abhishek Agarwal. The Prime Minister complimented the film’s crew and expressed his appreciation.
