Vivek-Agnihotri-Tashkent-Files

Vivek Agnihotri’s film The Tashkent Files is all set to release on April 12. This film has been in the headlines for it’s sensitive topic and there are also allegations of it being a propaganda film. News host Rajdeep Sardesai had Vivek Anand Oberoi as his guest on his prime time news show yesterday (April 2). Vivek will be seen in the soon-to-release film PM Narendra Modi. It was while talking to Vivek that Rajdeep pointed out that The Tashkent Files is also a part of the line-up of political films that are releasing this year, hinting that it might be a propaganda film. This didn’t go down well with the director and Vivek Agnihotri took to twitter to clarify things with Rajdeep.

While this year is seeing many politically-inclined films, almost all are being said to be allegedly propaganda films. During the discussion Rajdeep pulled up films that were alleged to be agenda films and also spoke about The Tashkent Files. Rajdeep while speaking about Agnihotri’s film said that it is made to accuse the Congress leadership. This for sure did not go well with the director. After watching the debate, Agnihotri took to Twitter to point out Rajdeep’s comments and also asked him to invite him on the show and clear doubts with the director himself. He wrote, “Friends, Someone sent me the attached clip from Rajdeep Sardesai’s show. Since Rajdeep Sardesai has blocked me, I have not other way to communicate to him. Can someone send my note to him. I am sure he will be fair.”

On April 1, we exclusively told you about what the producer of the film Pallavi Joshi had to say about the propaganda allegations. In an exclusive chat with CineBlitz when asked about the allegations she said, “One of the challenges that we faced was selling the film, and that took a long time. People are scared, let me tell you. Studios didn’t want to touch the film. It was in January that we got Zee on board, then by the time all the marketing aspects fell into place, it was already February. Then we decided to release it after Kesari, and that is how it came down to April 12. It was never designed to be in the election season. When we decided the release date, the election dates were not even out.” The Tashkent Files is a film that talks about the mysterious death of the second Prime Minister of India, Lal Bahadur Shastri in 1966, in Tashkent, in the Soviet Union.
