The photographs from the meeting showed the team engrossed in an important conversation with Shah.
In another tweet, the director mentioned Shah, who has been working tirelessly to unite people's hearts since the abolition of Article 370. Toward the end, the director concluded and wrote that he is confident that Kashmir will be remembered as an "example of humanity."
After the boldest decision of the abrogation of article 370 @AmitShah ji has started the process of bonding hearts. I have no doubt that Kashmir will emerge as an example of humanity and oneness for the world to follow. pic.twitter.com/15gEbk2cXL— Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri (@vivekagnihotri) March 16, 2022
Shah expressed his honour and lauded the team's sincere efforts to bring out the truth about the 'sacrifice, unbearable pain, and struggle of Kashmiri Pandits' who were forced to leave their home in their own country.
#TheKashmirFiles सत्य का एक निर्भीक निरूपण है।— Amit Shah (@AmitShah) March 16, 2022
ऐसी ऐतिहासिक गलतियों की पुनरावृत्ति न हो इस दिशा में यह समाज व देश को जागरूक करने का काम करेगी।
ये फिल्म बनाने के लिए मैं पूरी टीम को बधाई देता हूँ। @AnupamPKher @vivekagnihotri https://t.co/dMJgWjy4g5
He also stated that ‘The Kashmir Files’ is a "bold representation of truth," and that it will work to make society and the country aware that such historical mistakes should not be repeated.
Recently addressing a meeting of BJP MPs following the party's re-election in four states, Modi stated that it is not about a film, but about "bringing out the truth" and "presenting history in its correct perspective" before the country, as this has long been "suppressed" by the "poori jamaat" (entire group).
इन दिनों #TheKashmirFiles फिल्म की चर्चा हो रही है,— BJP (@BJP4India) March 15, 2022
जो लोग 'freedom of expression' के झंडे लेकर घूमते हैं, वो बौखलाए हुए हैं।
एक पूरे इकोसिस्टम द्वारा षड्यंत्र चलाया जा रहा है।
जो सत्य है उसको सही स्वरूप में देश के सामने लाना, देश की भलाई के लिए होता है।

In a clip of his address to the parliamentary party released by the BJP, Modi stated that the reluctance to present history and historical figures in the proper context resulted in the delayed recognition of Mahatma Gandhi.
