When we heard that a director is finally going to show our tragedy, my interest in it grew. At the time of the trailer, we had some questions in our minds, yet we thought that we would wait for the film. Today we saw this film, Sushil Pandit was also present with me. But there was no talk of the massacre of Kashmiri Pandits anywhere from the first scene of the film to the last. Instead, there was only one lover in the film. This is also fine because it is your film and you have the right to show….”

The video of Divya Razdan where she was interviewed by a journalist went viral on social media. Millions of people who agreed with her felt the urge to join the controversy and fight against the injustice that the film is availing
