PM Modi Praises Yami Gautam Starrer Article 370 During His Visit To Jammu, Film Set To Release Tomorrow

During a speech at a rally in Jammu on February 20, Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned an upcoming film about Article 370 and claimed it will help people learn the truth.

While addressing a public rally at Maulana Azad Stadium in the heart of Jammu, the Prime Minister said, “I have heard that perhaps a film on Article 370 is going to be released this week. I think your ‘Jai Jai Kaar’ (cheers) are going to be heard all over the country.”

Since Article 370 was repealed in August 2019, PM Modi has visited the Jammu region twice. This visit also happened to coincide with the movie’s impending release later this week. Modi noted that he was not familiar with the details of the movie but emphasised that these kinds of works had the ability to give the people correct information.

“I do not know what the film is all about but yesterday I heard on TV that a film is coming on Article 370. Good, it will be useful for people to get correct information,” the Prime Minister said.

Responding to PM Modi’s speech, Yami Gautam took to Instagram and also shared a video of his speech and wrote, “It is an absolute honour to watch PM @narendramodi Ji talk about #Article370Movie. My team and I really hope that we all exceed your expectations in bringing this incredible story to the screen!”

The film, titled “Article 370”, is produced by Aditya Dhar, renowned for his directorial work on “Uri: The Surgical Strike”, which earned him the National Film Award for Best Director. The movie centres on eliminating terrorism in Kashmir by nullifying the effects of Article 370, in which Gautam plays an intelligence operative. On August 5, 2019, the Central government divided the former state of Jammu and Kashmir into the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, rescinding Article 370, which had granted the former state unique status.

Aditya Suhas Jambhale is directing the film, which is scheduled to open in theatres on February 23 and stars Arun Govil, Priyamani, and Yami Gautam. The public’s interest in the portrayal of Article 370 revocation has increased further with the film’s publication, which coincides with the country’s impending legislative elections.

The Supreme Court affirmed the federal government’s decision to repeal Article 370 of the Constitution on December 11th, ruling that Jammu and Kashmir shares the same level of internal sovereignty as the other states in the nation. CJI DY Chandrachud, while writing the judgment for himself, Justices Gavai and Surya Kant, observed, “All provisions of the Indian Constitution can be applied to J-K… We hold the exercise of presidential power to issue constitutional order abrogating Article 370 of Constitution as valid,” The 5 judge bench of the apex court also upheld the government’s decision to carve out the union territory of Ladakh from the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir.
