Shikara was being screened in Delhi recently where Vidhu was present along with the cast to get a first-hand response from the audience. After watching the movie a woman belonging to the community of Kashmiri Pandits broke down and lashed out at Chopra.

According to the woman, the movie did not portray the actual suffering of the community that includes the genocide, mass rapes and mass murders committed by Islamic radical groups. “Ye aapka commercialism aapko mubarak ho (Congratulations on your commercialism). As a Kashmiri Pandit, I disown your film, I disown it,” said the woman in the now-viral video.

The woman also picked on the need to cast Muslim actors whereas he could have cast Kashmiri Pandit actors in the movie. She asked, “You could have cast Kashmiri Pandit actors, but you chose to take Muslim actors. Why did play this politics?

Trying to balance the situation Chopra said that “truth has two faces“. He added, “Ab aapke liye sequel two banaengey (Now I will make a sequel for you).

Meanwhile, talking about Shikara, the movie stars newcomersĀ  Aadil Khan and Sadia. It released all over yesterday, and the box-office collections for the movie don’t look too promising.
