Pallavi Joshi is gearing up for her next film, The Tashkent Files which depicts the questions which were raised after the mysterious death of late Prime Minister of India, Lal Bahadur Shastri. She spilled the beans on her character from the film and also revealed that she hopes the film will bring to light this ignored part of the history. She revealed how until now, we were taught the wrong history without question. She further went on to say how we tend to ignore the sacrifice of leaders like Gopal Krishna Gokhale and Lokmanya Tilak.
 
Pallavi Joshi told IANS, "History has always been written by the people who emerged victorious. The story of opposition, the one who lost the battle, has not been documented correctly. We just write, read and celebrate the glory of the winner. Though the other side is also part of history, it is largely ignored". She further added about her character Ayesha Ali Shah in the film and said, "She is the nastiest woman I have ever played. She is one of those historians, who comes from a family of Nawabs and is decorated by the government. She believes that she has the right to write on people the way she wants and people around her are inferior. She is dark, she is arrogant and I really had a great time performing such a character". 
 
 
She further went on to say, "We always celebrate the contribution of (Mahatma) Gandhi and (Jawaharlal) Nehru which is great. But shall we ignore the contribution and sacrifice of Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Lokmanya Tilak) and many of them who played an important part in India's freedom movement? I think since we are taught that two individuals are responsible for India's independence, our earlier generations never questioned them critically. But questioning important matters is a common practice in a democracy". The film is directed by her husband Vivek Agnihotri and also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakraborty, Pankaj Tripathi and Shweta Basu Prasad in pivotal roles.
