More BJP-ruled states made “The Kashmir Files” tax-free on Tuesday, while Uttar Pradesh did the same.

Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Tuesday praised filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri’s “The Kashmir Files,” based on the 1990s exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir Valley, and said the film will be remembered as a milestone in India’s cinematic journey. .

The Union’s housing and urban affairs minister said Agnihotri has done “full justice” to Kashmiri Pandits’ plight with the film, which opens “one of the darkest chapters of our modern history”.

“The #KashmirFiles will be remembered as a milestone in India’s cinematic journey. @vivekagnihotri pulls out one of the darkest chapters of our modern history with nuanced portraits and sensitive stories that do full justice to the plight of #KashmiriPandits,” Puri said in a tweet.

Released last week, the film stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Joshi.

More BJP-ruled states made “The Kashmir Files” tax-free on Tuesday, while Uttar Pradesh did the same.

Previously, Karnataka, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Tripura released the film from entertainment tax as demand grew to clear it from the tax across the country.
