Old Unrelated Movie Clip goes Viral as a scene from The Kashmir Files.

False National

The viral video is not from the Kashmir Files, but from another film named ‘Mudda 370 J&K’ released in 2019, also based on Kashmir. 

An 11-minute long video is widely circulating on social media with the claim that it shows the scenes from the film The Kashmir Files. Vivek Agnihotri’s film The Kashmir Files has been in the controversies for the most part of last month. The film is based on the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits in 1990s. The film split public opinion as some praised the movie for portraying the plight of the Kashmiri Pandits while others criticized it for pushing political agenda of the BJP. However, despite the controversy, the film enjoyed massive success on the Box Office earning more than 300 crores making it one of the most successful films of 2022.

The caption of a viral Facebook post reads, “Watch the scenes of the film the Kashmir Files for the first time on Facebook.”
