So what was the inspiration for this story that has piqued interest. Vidhu Vinod Chopra expressed his sentiment about the visual "Primarily, the source material is my life. And of course, I had writers Abhijat Joshi and Rahul Pandita who worked with me. I read a lot of books, met a lot of people, but the source really is my life."

He further added, "It’s fiction, but it’s based on real events… It was a difficult film to write. For the first few years, I wasn’t sure I could make the film. It was too painful. I needed to be a bit more distant from the events that my mom and I went through to make this film objectively. It eventually took me close to 11 years to write Shikara." We hear that to maintain the authenticity of the events, actual footage from 30 years ago was used in the movie along with 4000 real Kashmiri Pandits.
