After upholding the flag of victory against the fringe by garnering 24 crores (19 crore day one and 5 crores from paid previews), the makers of the magnum opus PADMAAVAT are geared up to fight the menace of the ugly piracy.

With an urge to viewers to not resort to illegal means/platforms/websites and to watch film in theaters and multiplexes, Viacom18 Motion Pictures & Bhansali Productions are taking adequate measures to ensure that the film is not being recorded and distributed illegally across social and digital platforms.

The producers are urging viewers and fans of the film to show their solidarity for the film which has faced enough challenges and to not watch film on illegal platform or through unauthorized means but only across theaters and multiplexes to enjoy this masterpiece.

Viacom18 has also sought John Doe order from Madras High Court against any person or entity infringing the said film and directing all concerned to immediately block illegal websites/URL’s hosting content related to the film. This would thereby restrain all unauthorized copying, transmission, communication, display, release, upload, download or exhibit of the film or part thereof in any manner.

Online content theft continues to negatively impact the growth of the film and television industries to the point where decisive government support and action has become essential. Viacom18 has also filed a complaint with cybercrime of Maharashtra unit for necessary action against the person who have committed the offence of copyright infringement. In their Complaint, Viacom18 has requested cyber police to take immediate action against all concerned involved in the offence of copyright infringement of the film in any manner. Maharashtra Cyber Crime unit has assured us of the swift action and we are thankful to them for their support against piracy. The producers plan to file similar complaint against the piracy with cyber police in other states as well.

PADMAAVAT (formerly titled PADMAAVATI), is a epic period drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali Based on the epic poem ‘Padmavat’ (1540) by Malik Muhammad Jayasi. The movie stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, alongside Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh, and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

The movie has been in the storm of controversy since its commencement of shoot. A group of people claimed that the movie distorts history and hurts Rajput pride but after the release it has been found that the allegations are baseless and the movie upholds the Rajput pride and it’s a grand cinematic experience.
