Nadav Lapid, an Israeli filmmaker, was invited by the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) to be a jury chief this year. He, however, used the platform to target The Kashmir Files, a film that depicted the plight and persecution of Kashmiri Hindus, saying he was “shocked” and “disturbed” by its inclusion in the competitive section. The film also “felt” to him “like a propaganda, vulgar movie, inappropriate for an artistic competitive section of such a prestigious film festival”. Lapid’s statement has met with sharp criticism. Even the Ambassador of Israel to India, Naor Gilon, accused the filmmaker of “abusing” his invitation to chair the panel of judges at IFFI. “In Indian culture, they say a guest is like God.

Mike Wilson, the chief investment officer (CIO) for Morgan Stanley, has warned that the recession caused by the coronavirus pandemic will be "steeper" than any previous economic downturn. Lawmakers and economists have been predicting an economic recession, as businesses across the nation have shut down or cut back operations in an effort to curb the spread of the rapidly spreading coronavirus. Unemployment claims have surged while the stock market has tanked. During a Thursday interview with CNBC's Squawk Box , Wilson weighed in with his perspective on the crisis. "I think it's a consensus that we're in a recession. It's going to be steeper than what we've seen probably ever before, and sharper," he explained. "The question is, is it going to be short?

The actor said that people criticizing The Kashmir Files don’t have an issue with the film but with the aftermath of its release. He said that the film has changed opinions and Lapid’s reactions are a result of the audiences’ reaction. “They don’t have a problem with The Kashmir Files, they have a problem with what it has done.
