Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat has fallen prey to the hands of fringe groups since the day the shoot had begun, and now, after a lot of troubles, the magnum opus made it to theatres gone Thursday, in spite of the fact that religious organizations are still violently protesting across the country.
But, that’s not the only problem that the makers are facing.
As it turns out, within a week from its release, the film had become available on as many as 35 torrent sites and to not let this matter get out of hand, the cyber crime department has begun a thorough investigation on the matter.
A spokesperson spoke about the same by saying, “Padmaavat was uploaded on 35 websites on Torrent and the cyber cell has pulled it down from each of them. Since most of these websites use payment methods, it will be easy to track the source.”
A yet another spokesperson spoke about the ongoing investigations by saying, “The cyber crime cells across the respective states have been extremely co-operative and have begun a thorough investigation into the matter. We hope that the authorities take strict and immediate action. The officials have been tracking the usual pirates. At some point, they will attempt to make pirated DVDs. The cyber cell has alerted their stringers about it, so they will be nabbed if they try it,”
Looks like the crimes against such highly anticipated movies are not dying down anytime soon. What do you think?
