Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri is very much active on social media. He also voices his opinions especially on the micro-blogging site, Twitter. Vivek was recently asked by a Twitter user to make 'The Manipur Files'. Read on to know what he has replied.

Vivek who is known for making films like 'The Tashkent Files' and 'The Kashmir Files' recently unveiled the trailer of 'The Kashmir Files: Unreported'. It will release on Zee5. After he shared the trailer, many commented on it and one user requested him to make a film on the Manipur violence. 

Vivek, while sharing his views on the subject of 'The Kashmir Files Unreported' tweeted, “Indian judiciary stood and stands blind and mute to Kashmiri Hindu Genocide. It failed and still fails to ‘suo moto’ protect the #RightToLife of Kashmiri Hindus as promised in our constitution.” The user commented, “Don't waste time go and make a movie Manipur Files if you are man enough.”

Vivek replied back, “Thanks for having so much faith in me. Par saari films mujhse hi banwaoge kya yaar? Tumhari ‘Team India’ mein koi ‘man enough’ filmmaker nahin hai kya".

Talking about the Manipur violence, two women were being paraded naked by a mob, dragged to a field and later allegedly gang-raped. It took place in the state on May 4, a day after clashes broke out between the valley-majority Meitei and the hill-majority Kuki tribe over the Meiteis' demand for Scheduled Tribes status. The video of the horrific incident went viral on social media. Only after more than two and half months, the case was registered. Several celebs like Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani, Sonu Sood and Vivek Agnihotri and others also condemned this heinous crime.
