FIRST SILENT MOVIE  IN KASHMIRI 



In 1928, a silent movie was made in kashmir .It was based on social evils. It was scripted by RC Kak ( who later became prime Minister of Kashmir) and a young Jai Lal Koul acted in it. Yes Same Jai/Jay Lal Koul who later headed SP college as it's principal. I stand corrected and updated.
