Jamshedpur: An 18-year-old aspiring filmmaker has been receiving threats on social media for making a short documentary on the communal violence here in July.

“I have been receiving threats ever since I uploaded a four-minute trailer of the film on YouTube and shared the link on my Facebook account,” said Kumar Gaurav.

“I captured the riot scenes in their true form and made a documentary on that. I have not taken names of any individual in the documentary.”

Gaurav said barring two people, Sonu Kumar and Amar Kumar Singh, an ABVP member, he has got all the threats from other states.

The ABVP had earlier this year disrupted screening of ‘Muzaffarnagar Baaki Hai’ at the Delhi University. The film is based on the communal riots in Muzaffarnagar in September 2013.

Gaurav’s 20-minute documentary, ‘Curfew – A Film on Communal Riot in Jamshedpur’, features violence and reactions of the victims, mostly belonging to members of the minority community.

The film was screened at the Udaipur Short Film Festival in September and received accolades.
