‘The Tashkent Files’ marches into its sixth week, braving the onslaught of Bollywood and Hollywood biggies like ‘Kalank’, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Student Of The Year 2’ and adds another feather to cap. The film has secured an invitation for screenings at The Rashtrapati Bhavan, an honour that every filmmaker hopes for. The first screening will be held on Saturday for The Honourable President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind. The buck does not stop there, it has also secured another invitation from the I&B Ministry which to be held at the Films Division on Sunday.
Talking about the invitation, an elated Vivek Agnihotri, director of ‘The Tashkent Files’ stated, “So many films are made and released during any given year and only a handful lands at The Rashtrapati Bhavan so by that count it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is celebratory moment for everyone involved in the film and extremely reassuring for me as a filmmaker.”
Agnihotri added, “I am beginning to get pre-release jitters and keeping my fingers crossed that everyone watching the film at The Rashtrapati Bhavan and Films Division enjoys it. The box office feedback is out there for everyone to see so I have my audience’s verdict but this verdict is equally critical.”
‘The Tashkent Files’ has marked a high rating IMDB and stands at 8.5 which is even higher than the blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’ (8.4).
