On Friday, April 15, director Vivek Agnihotri went to his social media accounts to express his gratitude to his fans for their love and support for his record-breaking film The Kashmir Files, which was released in 2017.

Delhi Files Story 2022
In the same way that Vivek’s previous project, The Kashmir Files, was based on the actual events of the mass killings and exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the Kashmir Valley, Vivek’s new project will follow the actual events of anti-Sikh riots that occurred in 1984, following the assassination of the then Prime Minister of India on October 31, 1984, which resulted in the deaths of more than 3000 innocent Sikhs in New Delhi and an estimated 8000-17000 deaths.
The armed separatist Khalistan movement, which desired independence from India, was responsible for the continuation of bloodshed in Punjab throughout the 1980s. During this period, the Sikh community was targeted, and a series of organized murders of community members took place. The assailants brought iron rods, clubs, gasoline, and fuel when they invaded Sikh neighborhoods to kill them. It is one of the darkest episodes in India’s historical record.

There was a lot of enthusiasm among fans in response to Vivek Agnihotri’s tweet, which was shared by many others. “You have established yourself as a legend. I’ve often wondered: Is there no director in our country who can create a film on the Kashmir holocaust, or about partition tragedy, or about mopla or Noakhali, or any of the other topics on which there is a huge list? It’s possible that God sent you to do this. “Wishing you the best of luck with your future endeavor,” one of the social media users said on Twitter.
Following a lengthy sit-in by Muslim women on the Seelampur-Jaffrabad route to protest the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019, violence between Hindus and Muslims erupted in Northeast Delhi in February and March 2020.
Violent protests occurred as BJP leader Kapil Mishra threatened to forcibly remove the demonstrators if they did not clear out by a specific deadline.
In all, 53 people were murdered, and many structures were damaged, according to government data. During the unrest, many local inhabitants were forced to flee their homes.
Meanwhile, Agnihotri is still reveling in the popularity of his most recent film, The Kashmir Files, which depicted the exodus of Hindus from the Kashmir Valley during the early 1990s, when separatists threatened them.
