The 53rd International Film Festival of India or IFFI Jury head's remarks on the movie 'The Kashmir Files' have triggered a stir. Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid, who headed the IFFI jury, called the Vivek Agnihotri's directorial a "propaganda" and a "vulgar movie" in Goa last evening. "We were, all of us, disturbed and shocked by the 15th film: The Kashmir Files. That felt to us like propaganda, vulgar movie, inappropriate for an artistic competitive section of such a prestigious film festival. I feel totally comfortable to share openly these feelings here with you on stage. Since the spirit of having a festival is to accept also a critical discussion which is essential for art and for life," Mr Lapid said during his address at the closing ceremony of the film festival.
