In the video shared on social media, the Kashmiri Pandit woman is seen calling the film ‘Ghatiya’. According to the woman, Shikara doesn’t portray the actual suffering of the community including the genocide, mass rapes and mass murders committed by Islamic radical groups. “Ye aapka commercialism aapko mubarak ho (Congratulations on your commercialism). As a Kashmiri Pandit, I disown your film, I disown it,” said the woman.

She further alleged that Chopra polarised the sufferings faced by the community, to which Chopra replied that he will work on a sequel of the film for the woman.
Trying to calm the situation down, the director also said that “truth has two faces” and people have different perspectives on the same issues.
“Ab aapke liye Sequel two banaengey (Now I will make a sequel for you),” replied Chopra in a lighter vein.
