Reacting to Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid’s comments on his film “The Kashmir Files”, veteran actor Anupam Kher on Tuesday said truth will always trump falsehood.
Lapid had termed “The Kashmir Files” as “propaganda movie” and “vulgar” at the closing ceremony of the 53rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) on Monday night in Goa. He had served as the jury head of the film gala.
In his speech at the closing ceremony of IFFI 2022, Lapid said he was “disturbed and shocked” to see the film being screened at the festival.
Reacting to the comments Kher told ANI, “If the holocaust was right then the exodus of Kashmiri pandits is also right. This seems pre-planned because immediately after it the tool-kit gang became active. It’s shameful for him to make a statement like this even though he comes from a community of Jews who suffered from the holocaust.”
“So by making a statement like this, he has also pained those people who suffered this tragedy. I would just say may god give him wisdom so that he doesn’t use the tragedy of thousands of people to fulfill his aim on stage,” he added.
