‘Before me, please question Vidhu Vinod Chopra on Mission Kashmir’: Vishal Bhardwaj

Vishal Bhardwaj, who drew flak for showing only side of Kashmir in his last movie Haider, has reacted strongly saying that he doesn’t understand why he is made a constant target while other filmmakers, who haven’t featured plight of Kashmiri pandits in their movies, get away so easily. He was discussing making of Haider at the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival when somebody from audience questioned his plot that snubbed the exodus of Kashmiri pandits. “Why don’t you ask Vidhu Vinod Chopra, a pandit himself, who made Mission Kashmir the same question? Why am I being grilled all the time?” he asked. Bhardwaj explained that the time period shown in Haider didn’t allow him to feature Pandits’ issue and he may make a movie on the exodus in future if he gets a chance. He further added that Bollywood has been unfair to Kashmir and not many filmmakers have attempted to present the true picture. “Had this happened in abroad, Hollywood would have made over 200 movies on Kashmir,” he said.
