New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Even a month after the release of The Kashmir Files, the movie is still creating a lot of buzz and has continued to break numerous records. The movie, starring Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Darshan Kumar and Pallavi Joshi, has managed to collect more than Rs 250 crore within two weeks and has become one of the highest-grossing Hindi films in the post-pandemic era. Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, the film is based on the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits during the Kashmir Insurgency in 1990.
According to film critic Taran Adarsh, The Kashmir Files is the first Hindi film to cross Rs 250 crores in India in the post-pandemic era.

The film earned Rs 85 lakh on Saturday and Rs 1.15 crore on Sunday.
