Pallavi Joshi and vivek Ranjan Agnihotri have been at the receiving end of immense backlash by many who felt like they have been trying to disseminate a narrative of disharmony through their films. The kashmir Files based on the Kashmiri Pandit exodus went on to become a money spinner at the box and eventually won both of them National Awards but the extreme reactions to the film from the audience and the film fraternity alike continue to create waves on social media. Their upcoming release The Vaccine war hasn’t been spared either.

In an exclusive chat reports added Joshi, who plays a pivotal part in the film and has also co-produced it with her husband, reacts to netizens calling it an agenda-driven film and asserts, “I don’t have anything to say to them because they aren’t my audience. They aren’t the kind of people who will understand the sentiment of the country.” She goes on to recall how the first film in their trilogy, The Tashkent Files, was also slammed by many. “Many called that a propaganda film. lal bahadur shastri was a congress leader. So, how is it a propaganda film, I don’t understand!

According to Joshi, the overwhelming response they received from the audience last month when the film was screened across the USA as part of the india For humanity Tour has shut down all detractors. In fact, Joshi and Agnihotri were joined by actor-director R madhavan for one of the screenings. Happy to have received his support, she says, “He was on a tour and we kept missing him in all the other cities. We finally caught up with each other in Washington DC. vivek spoke to him and he told us that he was leaving the same night but made time for us and watched the film.”
