After the screening of Akshay Kumar’s Bachchhan Paandey at the Eylex Cinema hall in Sambalpur, Odisha, was cancelled, locals crashed the screening of Akshay Kumar’s Bachchhan Paandey. The show was reportedly cancelled due to a dispute between the cinema hall and the distributor.

The problem was eventually fixed, and The Kashmir Files shows were rescheduled. A mob can be seen marching around the theatre chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’ and chants about the right-wing group Bajrang Dal, according to videos published on social media.

A user shared the video and wrote, “Akshay Kumar’s movie #BachchanPandey screening forcefully stopped by a mob in Bhubneshwar so that they can screen #KashmirFiles Btw Mango season has started Akshay bhai.”

Following the release of Vivek Agnihotri’s film The Kashmir Files in theatres, multiple recordings of individuals sloganeering and shouting anti-Muslim hate comments surfaced online. The film depicts the departure of Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s.

The film has been doing well at the box office, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has applauded it.
