The actor took to Instagram and wrote a long note, which read, “Please notice the pin drop silence in the film industry about The Kashmir Files. Not just content even its business is exemplary. Investment and profit proportion might be such a case study that it will be the most successful and profitable film of the year. It also broke many myths about theatres being exclusive for big budgets event films or visual/VFX spectacles post pandemic. It is breaking every myth and preconceived notion that was there about bringing back the audiences to the theatres. 6 am shows in multiplexes are full. It is unbelievable! Bullydawood aur unke chamche sadme mein chale gaye hai. Not a word. Sari duniya dekh rahi hai inlo lekin phir bhi not a word. Their time is up.”
