We all know how The Kashmir Files not only blew up at the box office but also served as an emotional flashback for those who were affected by the events.

The film's box office has broken new records since the pandemic, despite being made on a reported low budget. The Kashmir Files has astonished everyone by being one of the fastest films to reach Rs. 100 crore at the box office following the pandemic, as well as one of the year's highest grosser.

Many rumours claiming that the events shown in the film are false circulated, but the makers quickly debunked them. Another rumour that has been debunked is that Akshay Kumar was approached for the project.

The producer Abhishek according to Bollywood Hungama, said that he was not approached for the film.

Anupam Kher, one of the performers, has released a behind-the-scenes video in which we witness Vivek Agnihotri and him crying after filming Pushkarnath's dying scene.

The Kashmir Files by Vivek Agnihotri is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in the 1990s. At the box office, the picture has been a huge hit. It is tax-free in several states. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath have all lauded the film.

Karan Johar praised The Kashmir Files in an interview with Gatalla Plus. He said,  "The Kashmir Files is not made on the budget like a lot of other movies. But it is probably going to be cost-to-profit the biggest hit of Indian cinema. I read on Box Office India and they said that such a movement hasn't happened since Jai Santoshi Maa, since 1975," said Karan.

He went on to add that, You have to accept that something is connecting with this country, and you have to keep an eye on it intellectually. You must observe it in order to absorb and learn from it that there has been movement. It's not just a movie anymore; it's a movement.
