Zee5 India's chief business officer Manish Kalra said, "At Zee5 our mission has been to educate and empower our viewers with quality content choices and as a futuristic brand we did see a significant share of our audiences are left uncatered due to the absence of inclusive features. "The Kashmir Files" is a story depicting a part of India’s history which should be made accessible for everyone to watch. We are happy to have organised a special screening for the specially-abled viewers as we welcome our new audiences on ZEE5; in line with our vision to create an inclusive ecosystem and democratise content consumption across the globe.”

irector Vivek Agnihotri said, “We are glad that The Kashmir Files reached out to and resonated with so many people across the world and now with ZEE5’s one-of-a-kind move, the movie will be accessible not only in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada but also in Indian Sign Language. This is a story which must be told, and I am glad that ZEE5 is helping us do that with their reach and network”.

Actor Darshan Kumaar said, “'The Kashmir Files' is a heart-wrenching story of pain, suffering and struggle. I believe everyone should know about this story as it’s a reminder to the people of the world to stand united and fight against brutal acts of terrorism. It gives us a message to live in harmony and make this world a better place to live in. As this movie is very close to my heart, I am extremely happy that "The Kashmir Files" has reached our specially-abled audiences and I hope to receive a lot of love from them”.

"The Kashmir Files" broke records at the box office by becoming the first post-pandemic Hindi movie to cross the 300-crore mark. With its digital debut on Zee5, the movie will be accessible to audiences across the globe in multiple languages and Indian Sign Language as well.
