Shalini Khanna, wife of Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna, had attended the special premiere of The Kashmir Files on March 4. However, after watching the film, she claimed that one of the scenes featuring her husband, has been wrongly depicted in the film. She further said that she raised an objection soon after the premiere while speaking on the stage, but the makers didn’t pay heed. In fact, there was no revert from their side on whether they would remove the scene from the film and therefore, she had to take the legal course.
The order issued by the court reads, “Suit for mandatory injunction directing the defendants to immediately remove and delete the scene and incorrect facts displayed/shown vis-a-vis the husband of the plaintiff, namely Martyr Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna, in the Movie and the trailer of the movie The Kashmir Files, set to be released on March 11, 2022, which is absolutely and entirely unrelated and non-identical to the actual facts occurred as mentioned in the suit by the plaintiff; or in the alternate to amend/alter the scene and the incorrect facts vis-a-vis the husband of the plaintiff namely Martyr Squadron Leader Sh. Ravi Khanna in the movie The Kashmir Files in accordance to the actual and true, occurred on the incidence i.e. on January 25, 1990, whereby the husband of the plaintiff was martyred.”
It further states, “Suit for permanent prohibitory injunction restraining the defendants to release the movie The Kashmir Files until the aforesaid removal, deletion or amendment of the scene and incorrect facts displayed vis-a-vis the husband of the plaintiff in the movie and trailer, contrary to the actual and true facts narrated by the plaintiff in the suit and otherwise also, any other relief that the honourable Court deems fit and necessary.”
The Kashmir Files, starring Anupam Kher, was slated to release on March 11.
