The Delhi Files Poster Out: Vivek Agnihotri Is Back With Another Film In The Files Franchise
After Tashkent Files and Kashmir Files, ace filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri is back with the 3rd film in the franchise – The Delhi Files
Vivek Agnihotri’s Tashkent Files was a massive success. The second film in the series, The Kashmir Files, directed and co-produced by him is getting ready for release, as production works are already completed and post-production works are also in progress. Now, Tollywood’s popular production house Abhishek Agarwal Arts has picked a controversial subject for their maiden Bollywood project and Vivek is going to direct the film, which is titled The Delhi Files.
After the clutter-breaking, hard-hitting and successful The Tashkent Files, the team has announced the name and released the motion poster of the film, The Delhi Files. A Sikh kid can be seen in the poster on the Emblem Of India logo which is coloured red, indicating the film will deal with another compelling tale of a dark and unread chapter from Indian History. The poster alone makes a great impact.

Talking about the numerous masala commercial films releasing on OTT and not doing well, Agnihotri had recently said while talking to Outlook, “The way situation stands right now, it is very difficult to say anything about OTT or theatres. But with the experience of Laxmmi, Gulabo Sitabo or Radhe and many other films of big stars which have come on OTT platforms, one thing is clear that stars are stars only when a lot of marketing and PR hype is created around them and they’re seen in glamorous pictures, travelling to different cities, giving interviews, their trailers running throughout – then only their stardom helps them,” said Agnihotri.
He added, “OTT has proved that without the hype these stars can’t get people to watch their films. And these big commercial films which are meant for cinema, the moment they come on OTT, and somebody’s hand in a digital device, then they look very bad and sound very bad. You can see how people have (reacted to) whether it is Coolie No.1 or Radhe or Laxmmi. The films which are somewhat tolerable in theatres, look pathetic on OTT. I am sure the trend will change after the lockdown (on theatres) is over. People will start making films which are more content-driven and not star-driven.”
Coming back to The Delhi Files, as soon as the film was announced, it received a humongous response from the audience. The film started immediately trending on Twitter
