‘The Kashmir Files’ director Vivek Agnihotri took a shot at IAS official Niyaz Khan after he asked him to donate all of the film’s profits to the education of Brahmin children in Kashmir. Vivek took to Twitter to request Khan’s appointment so that they can talk about how Khan too can assist with the royalty of his penned books. As per his Twitter bio, Khan has published seven novels.
Earlier, the IAS officer wrote on Twitter, ‘Income of Kashmir Files reached 150 crore. Great. People have given a lot of respect for Kashmiri Brahmins’ feelings. I would respect film producer to transfer all earnings to the Brahmin children’s education and construction of homes for them in Kashmir. It will be a great charity’.
Responding to the tweet, Vivek added, ‘Sir Niyaz Khaan Sahab, Bhopal aa raha hoon 25th ko (I’m coming to Bhopal on the 25th). Please give an appointment so we can meet and exchange ideas how we can help and how you can help with the royalty of your books and your power as an IAS officer’.
