The danger of piracy loomed over Akshay Kumar’s highly awaited independence week release TOILET – EK PREM KATHA co –starring Bhumi Pednekar. Here is what Akshay Kumar has to say on this.
The new age face of on screen patriotisms, Akshay Kumar took to his social media page and said, “The fight against piracy is critical and it's reassuring to see the swift action taken by the Crime Branch on the unfortunate incident involving our film TOILET : EK PREM KATHA.
TOILET-EK PREM KATHA MOVIE STILLS
"I would like urge my friends, colleagues, fans and audiences to please say no to piracy. Thank you all for support,"
Akshay’s response came after choreographer turned filmmaker Remo D'Souza came across a pirated copy of the film in a pen drive through his gym trainer and naturally like a concern and responsible member of film fraternity, was shocked. Remo immediately informed Akshay and the makers.
Bollywood is fighting battle against the demon of piracy since ages and sometimes things have gone out of control beyond imaginations with movies like UDTA PUNJAB and GREAT GRAND MASTI getting leaked couple of days earlier to their release but the case with TOILET: EK PREM KATHA was overwhelmingly worrying initially as the movie got leaked 2 weeks earlier than its release.
However, things seem to be now under control with Akshay Kumar’s assurance to his fans and confidence shown in Crime Branch.
Showing confidence, Producer Prernaa Arora from KriArj Entertainment has also reassured the industry, audience and public in general in an official statement which reads, “There have been reports of my film TOILET : EK PREM KATHA having leaked online. I would like to assure my well-wishers and colleagues not to worry as everything's under control. Someone tried to create mischief, but thanks to the Crime Branch, it's all under control."
Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, TOILET : EK PREM KATHA is based on a love story against the backdrop of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
