Vivek Agnihotri shared, “We performed the sound of The Kashmir Files and we narrated two stories of the victims by Darshan Kumaar and Pallavi Joshi along with the huge symphonic orchestra. There wasn’t even one eye in that jam-packed theatre that wasn’t flowing with tears.
“Even the auditorium staff which was standing near, since I was waiting backstage I noticed even they were crying just listening to it and not even seeing it. This shows that everybody is getting connected to the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters.
The Kashmir Files was not just a film for us, it’s our mission to tell the stories of Kashmir genocide to people in all art forms. We have used this Musical theatre kind of a mix for the first time in India as an experiment and we are going to take it forward with many other forms but we will not sit until we tell the entire story of Kashmir”.
