The movie has garnering immense popularity however some controversies surrounded the film. One of them is that Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel alleged that the movie shows ‘only half-truths and told ANI, “I watched ‘The Kashmir Files‘, the film is made on the terrorist incidents that happened in Kashmir. The entire film is focused on only one family but in the end, the main hero emphasized that not only Hindus, the people of different religions including Buddhists, Muslims, Sikhs were also murdered. But this film has been made to send only one political message that only Kashmiri Pandits were displaced.Half-truth is shown in the film. It is not appropriate to show one side in the film. If they (BJP-led central government) want to do politics through this and prepare for 2024 Lok Sabha polls, then they are taking the country in a very wrong direction.”
