Yami Gautam has also responded to critics calling Article 370 "a propaganda film." Article 370 film, based on the government's determination to abolish Article 370, is slated to release this month, just a few weeks before the 2024 Indian general election. The actress feels there is no point of ‘justifying film to people with preconceived notions'.

Yami Gautam told the news agency PTI, "If someone is calling it names… like ‘propaganda’, 'jingoism', and ‘chest-thumping’... Any section that goes into theatres already thinking or carrying a preconceived notion that this is what it's about, you’ll never be able to feel or enjoy the film. There is no point justifying the film to them. I don't think the audience thinks about these things. This film is for the majority of the audience and we make films for the audience."

At the film's trailer launch, Aditya Dhar has also addressed questions about the film being 'propaganda-driven' and said that the current ruling government doesn't need a 'small film' like Article 370 to get votes in the upcoming elections. "I personally and seriously feel that the current government doesn't need a small film like ours to win an election (smiles). They made Ram Mandir for us. It took us 500 years to get that. I don't think they need us to get votes for them," he said.

"Article 370 has the right intent. The timing was decided a year or two ago because the release dates are selected after a conversation with the exhibitors and distributors. That's how we decided upon this date. There was supposed to be another film in between, The Immortal Ashwatthama. It didn't happen. By God's grace, this is the best time we have and that's how we are releasing the film," Aditya added.
