One of the most important, relevant and unreported story of Indian history, Vivek’s next ‘The Kashmir Files’ was invited by several prestigious institutions and organizations of USA.
The critically acclaimed filmmaker, along with Pallavi Joshi, is excited about the humble and heartfelt response that ‘The Kashmir Files’ is getting during the film screening.
Vivek led by wife Pallavi Joshi and team, despite being under threat of fatwa, conducted extensive research over the past three years and carried out this task.
