Farhad Samji’s Bachchhan Paandey follows Sanon’s character, an ambitious filmmaker, as she studies a gangster, played by Akshay grossed Rs. 46 crore in its first week. Vivek Agnihotri’s film The Kashmir Files is based on the flight of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in 1990 made 110 crores in the same period, utterly outperforming the Akshay Kumar-starrer across all territories.
Khiladi Kumar also spoke to Hindustan Times about The Kashmir Files and how he would never blame Anupam Kher’s starrer for his film’s poor box office performance. He stated that he was delighted at the success of The Kashmir Files. It demonstrates the strength of the film and the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy for starting budgets and making films in a specific style that leads to success. It illustrates that viewers are the ones for whom we make films, and when they love something, it just takes off. He said, “Yes, I would have for Bachchhan Paandey to perform better than it currently does, but I never criticize the Kashmir files for it. That movie is a storm, and we were caught in the middle of it.”
The actor also tweeted about The Kashmir Files and hoped to watch it soon. He wrote, “Hearing absolutely incredible things about your performance in #TheKashmirFiles @AnupamPKher. Amazing to see the audience back to the cinemas in large numbers. Hope to watch the film soon. Jai Ambe (sic).”
