Rahul Dholakia to extend Lamhaa into a book

Published: Friday, July 16, 2010, 9:42 [IST]

The extensive research that Rahul Dholakia has put into making of Lamhaa will now be extended beyond the film into a book on the politics of Kashmir. Dholakia feels, he has enough material to expose what he calls 'the business of keeping militancy alive in the valley".

In a shocking expose on Kashmiri politics Dholakia says, “Militancy in Kashmir has become a huge business. Everyone is making a profit out of it. I interviewed the top politicians and extremist leaders. They all seemed to feel the same way. In fact one extremist leader whom I cannot name, said, 'I"m taking money from both sides (India and Pakistan)'."

Such revelations, never made before, would form a part of Dholakia"s book of interviews on Kashmiri militancy. Says the filmmaker, “I"ve so much material far beyond the film. I"ve taped interviews with extremist leaders and Kashmiri politicians, all adding up to a volatile picture of the valley. I will publish my Kashmir papers".
