Prior to the release of The Kashmir Files, the film starring Anupam Kher in the lead role was mired in controversy due to various reasons. One of them was the filmmakers and actor not being invited to the comedy show The Kapil Sharma Show. It all started when director Vivek Agnihotri tweeted that he was not invited to the show as it has ‘big commercial stars’. However later, in an interview, the lead actor had cleared the air saying that The Kashmir Files did not appear in the comedy show as it is a serious film.
The film, which released in March, created panic on social media and created panic at the box office. Helmed by Vivek Agnihotri, it also starred his wife Pallavi Joshi, Darshan Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty in lead roles.
But looks like Anupam Kher is a firm believer in letting go of the bygone days as he recently appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote his upcoming film Unchai. On Instagram, she shared a series of pictures with host Kapil Sharma and other co-stars like Neena Gupta, Boman Irani, Sarika and others. But it seems his presence did not go down well with the netizens as he quickly remembered Kher of The Kashmir Files controversy.
Soon after Anupam Kher shared the pictures on Instagram, he received an overwhelming response as netizens called it doglap. Commenting on the post, a user wrote, “Anupam sir but he refused it by promoting To The Kashmir Files, still you went on the show, well what do you have to do with the deities of Hindu religion, you only have money. Kamana wah”. While another said, “All Bollywood is full of dogs… To promote your movies, Bollywood people are khin bi phuch jaye…”
A third user said, “Why Anupam ji forgot this anti-Sanatan Dharma protest Kapil’s action, it made you feel like promoting people’s film The Kashmir Fails, then all the people gave us the truth of the film after watching the film. After watching a huge amount of given The US film or today you have come again in this Gir Kapil’s program, why do great people need this Gir Kapil because you come here…
