Speaking about the project, director Vivek Agnihotri had said, ‘When The Kashmir Files was postponed during the Covid lockdown, I started researching on it. Then we started doing research with ICMR and NIV scientists who created the vaccine. The story of their struggle and sacrifice was tremendous and during the research. We came to understand how these scientists fought the war waged against India not only by foreign agencies but by our own people.
