Day after West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee Banerjee announced a ban on ‘The Kerala Story’, ‘The Kashmir Files’ director Vivek Agnihotri has revealed that he has sent a legal notice to her for her comments made about him and the film. He along with Pallavi Joshi and Abhishek Agarwal have asked Banerjee to ‘tender unconditional apology’ by ‘withdrawing all the allegations’ against them and their films on May 8.

While addressing the media a ban on ‘The Kerala Story’, Banerjee said, “What was ‘The Kashmir Files’? It was meant purely to humiliate a particular section of society. What is ‘The Kerala Story’? It is a distorted story.”

Taking to Twitter, Vivek wrote, "BREAKING: I have, alongwith @AbhishekOfficl & Pallavi Joshi, sent a LEGAL NOTICE to the Chief Minister, Bengal @MamataOfficial for her false & highly defamatory statements made with malafide intention to defame us & our films #TheKashmirFiles & upcoming 2024 film #TheDelhiFiles (sic)." 


The Kashmir Files was released in 2022 and was directed by Vivek Agnihotri. The movie told the story of Kashmiri Pandits exodus in the 90s. The Kerala Story, on the other hand, is currently facing ban in several states.
