Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, who recently wrapped up the highly acclaimed Humanity Tour shared that the filmmaker underwent knee surgery due to a cartilage rupture that occurred on December 24, 2020.

The director worked hard day and night in the making of the blockbuster ‘The Kashmir Files’ for one and half years. And while working on his ambitious project, Vivek neglected his knee condition.

Taking to his social media, Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri writes, “This was the day - 24th Dec 2020. When I slipped and tore my Cartilage. Doctors asked me to rest it out for 6-8 weeks. But like they say, Show, Must Go On. The show went on, uninterrupted, for the next 18 months but my knee worsened. Today, whom do I blame for ‘self-inflicted-fracture’?”

The Indian filmmaker also shared a bunch of his pictures from behind the scenes of 'The Kashmir Files'. He can be seen walking with the help of a stick.

Meanwhile, the fans got worried and showcased their concern through the comment section. Some also came ahead to pray for the filmmaker’s health.

Apart from this, the powerful and visionary duo: Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri and actor-producer Pallavi Joshi have recently come back from the phenomenal ‘Humanity Tour’. Scheduled from May 28 to June 26 2022, the duo traveled to various prominent places across the United Kingdom, Germany, and the Netherlands including Nehru Centre London, Fitzwilliam College Cambridge University, Oxford University, Leicester University, Birmingham Community, Parliament Of UK, Babylon Theatre Berlin, Community Meet Berlin, Salzachlieder Frankfurt and Global Human Rights Defence – The Hague among other renowned places.
