Popular TV host Nikhil Chinapa has questioned director Vivek Agnihotri regarding a tweet made by the latter regarding his movie 'The Kashmir Files' and Oscars 2023. The director had tweeted about his movie being an "official contender from India" for the 95th Academy Awards. Vivek Agnihotri had earlier also falsely claimed that 'The Kashmir Files' had been shortlisted for Oscars 2023.
Replying to Vivek Agnihotri's tweet, Nikhil Chinappa asked: "What is an official contender?"
A user replied to Nikhil's tweet, saying: "Is there anything official about the man?"
Another user said: "Same meaning as "facts are not facts."
Another user commented: "Just hallucination by @vivekagnihotri. With this logic, all 18 lakh students are official contenders for medical seats."
Earlier, Agnihotri had also claimed that lead stars of 'The Kashmir Files' -- Pallavi Joshi, Mithun Chakraborty, Darshan Kumaar, and Anupam Kher have all been shortlisted for best actor categories at Oscars 2023.
