Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin questioned the choice of controversial movie The Kashmir Files for the Nargis Dutt Award, The News Minute reported.

The 69th National Film Awards jury picked the movie for National Integration.

The decision to confer the award to a movie that stirred up controversies has been widely criticised.

Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri’s work is based on the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits from the valley.

The report said that the movie was critcised for ‘vilifying and delegitimizing Kashmiri Muslim pain.’

‘It is shocking that a film that was denounced by objective film critics for promoting communal enmity should have been chosen for an award meant to promote harmony. The absence of political bias in the literature and film awards makes the awards a timeless honour. The dignity of national awards should not be compromised for cheap politics.’ Stalin was quoted as saying.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister congratulated those behind the movie Kadaisi Vivasayi (The Last Farmer) and other winners of the National Film Awards from Tamil cinema industry.
