Box Office India noted that the Vivek Agnihotri film has witnessed a drop in its collection by 15 per cent for the first time on Tuesday.
Ashish Saksena, COO – Cinemas, BookMyShow, shared that The Kashmir Files has been an “unexpected underdog”.
He said, “The film is quick to climb the ranks and become the big hero of the season. The blockbuster has crossed a whopping 5 million in ticket sales on BookMyShow within less than two weeks, making it the second fastest Hindi film to reach this mark (following that of the mega-movie Dangal).”
Meanwhile, The Kashmir Files is receiving a mixed response from the audience. Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma watched the movie and shared his opinion about it on his YouTube channel. He said, “I hate Kashmir Files because it destroyed whatever I learned, whatever I thought was right and whatever I thought was in at multiple times. I can’t go back and I can’t reinvent myself and can’t rethink now, ‘Oh, this is how it should be made’. No, can’t. So I hate Kashmir Files whether it is the director or acting style or it is the way the screenplay was made.” Agnihotri thanked him for his reaction.
