After the awards were announced, he dedicated his win to the Kashmiri Pandits. Talking to the media he said, "Yes I dedicate my award to them and I feel very sad because they misunderstood my feelings. I have said it before that the tragedy of Kashmiri Pandits is very big." However it seems that, his comment on the Kashmir Pandits did not go well with Anupam Kher.
Anupam immediately took to Twitter to put forth his views. His tweets read-
However, Vishal said, "3,00,000 people were thrown out of their houses overnight and were homeless. They were refugees in their own country. It deserved a film long before and by the Kashmiri Pandit filmmakers," he said. "When Mr Anupam Kher got his first chance, he made a film like Om Jai Jagdish, which was not about Kashmiri Pandits. When Vidhu Vinod Chopra got a chance, he made Mission Kashmir where no Kashmiri Pandit was mentioned."
Now, we wonder what Anupam Kher has to say about this!
