Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan on Sunday said he would definitely watch ‘The Kashmir Files’ as it is a part of Indian history that breaks the hearts of all. The actor made the statement when he had graced the promotions of upcoming multi-lingual film ‘RRR’ with Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Jr NTR, and Director Rajamouli in Delhi.
Khan was asked about his views on the latest release and he had said he could not watch the film but would watch it soon. He said “Yeh ek History ka aisa hissa hai jisse humara dil dukhta hai.” Kashmir mein jo Kashmiri panditon ke saath hua hai.. woh bahut dukh ki baat hai. Aur aisi ek topic pe jo film bani hai, har Hindustani ko yeh dekhna chaiye aur har Hindustani ko yaad karna chaiye, ki ek inssan pe jab atyachar ho toh kya beetiti hai.”
The film talks about a dark phase that still hurt us. Whatever happened with Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir was really sad. We have a film that showcases the darkest chapter of history. So, every Indian should watch it, and they should realise what happens when innocent lives have to go through such a dreadful phase.
Aamir further added, “This film has touched the emotions of all people who believe in humanity, and it’s wonderful. So I will definitely watch the film, and I am so happy that the film is successful.”
A few fans applauded the honesty of the actor in addressing the issue while there is a section among the netizens who accuse the actor of sympathising with the issue for selfish gains.

If you are taking Aamir Khan's take on #TheKashmiriFiles seriously than the joke is on YOU. Praise or compliment by bollywood on the movie is now simply lip service because they can't antagonise people's might and voice. So take every bollywood compliment from here on with pinch.
