Vivek Agnihotri and The Kashmir Files keep marching from strength to strength. The latest honour bestowed on the film and its maker is a citation from the state of Ohio.
“Indeed , you have sought to craft a film of universal appeal that speaks to a matter of great historical importance, the forced exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits and you can be justifiably proud of your achievements,” states the citation signed by the President of the Ohio senate.
Vivek Agnihotri is happy beyond words. “It is a matter of great pride for our film to be so honoured. Honestly I won’t allow myself to take any credit. I keep going to milestones. And I keep moving on. Abb yeh ho gaya chalo aage badhte hain.I am the medium. I am just the tool to make this happen. You ask the Kashmiri Pandits, they will tell you Vivek Agnihotri is the medium. I am a spiritual person. I am very different from your average filmmaker. For me cinema is a tool a medium for social reform. My next film is also about change.I am confident that too will have a big impact.
