Big blow to ‘The Kashmir Files’ from the J&K court
On Thursday a court in Jammu and Kashmir restrained the makers of ‘The Kashmir Files‘ film from showing scenes depicting late IAF Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna in the movie which will be released on Friday, 11 March 2022.
The court passed the order after Nirmal Khanna, wife of the Indian Air Force officer, approached the court seeking removal or amendment of scenes depicting her husband claiming it was contrary to facts.
Ravi Khanna was one of the four IAF personnel shot dead in Srinagar on January 25, 1990, by a group led by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik.
“Given the facts as stated in the plaint the defendants are restrained by way of temporary injunction from showing the scenes depicting the acts pertaining to the husband of the plaintiff namely martyr Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna in the movie The Kashmir Files,” Additional District Judge Jammu, Deepak Sethi said in the order.
The court further observed that if no relief is granted to the applicant without serving prior notice of the application on the defendants, the suit of the applicant will become infructuous and hence would be defeated by delay.
The film stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Puneet Issar, Pallavi Joshi, Chimnay Mandlik, and Mrunal Kulkarni. The film’s trailer and motion pictures released earlier have already been received very positively by the people.
Produced and Directed by the National award Winner Vivek Agnihotri, The Kashmir Files is based on the Genocide and Exodus of Kashmiri Hindus and is inspired by true events.
