While there is no official confirmation about the plot of ‘The Delhi Files’, there are rumours that it will be based on the Delhi riots of 2020 which erupted during the protests against the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) and NRC (National Register of Citizens).
It is to be noted that in 2019, the central government gave a favorable judgment in the context of Article 370 for the residences of Jammu and Kashmir. The speculations from the tweets by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri have been rifted that the filmmaker might take the stories of genocides ahead with ‘The Delhi Files’.
