Vidhu Vinod Chopra directed and produced Mission Kashmir, a 2000 Indian Hindi-language action thriller film. Suketu Mehta wrote the screenplay for the film, which stars Sanjay Dutt, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, Jackie Shroff, and Sonali Kulkarni. After his entire family is accidentally killed by police officials, the film depicts the life and sorrow of a little kid named Altaaf Khan (Hrithik Roshan).
When the police chief who is responsible for this adopts him, Altaaf seeks vengeance and becomes a terrorist. The video is about terrorism and the tragedy of children who are victims of conflict. Because of the violence, it was rated R in the United States. At the Stockholm International Film Festival, the film was screened.
Despite its release alongside Aditya Chopra’s romance Mohabbatein, the film was a critical and commercial triumph, earning Rupees 433 million (US$9.64 million) to become the third highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2000. Mission Kashmir earned six nominations, including Best Film, Best Director (Vidhu Vinod Chopra), Best Actor (Sanjay Dutt), Best Supporting Actress (Sonali Kulkarni), and Best Villain (Jackie Shroff), and won Best Action at the 46th Filmfare Awards.
Due to the very real fear of terrorist attacks, security in Kashmir is always tight. As a result, films like Mission Kashmir, which deals with the local militant insurgency in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the larger Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan, have been inspired.
