So the piracy kings are again at work, this time with adult comedy Great Grand Masti
After Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab, it is Indra Kumar’s multi starrer film Great Grand Masti whose Censor Board copy has been leaked online. A user uploaded a screenshot on Twitter showing that the film is leaked on various portals online.
Ironically both the films faced problems in getting their movies passed from the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Alike Udta Punjab, the Pahlaj Nihalani headed board had asked the makers to make certain ‘adjustments’ in Great Grand Masti.
While Udta Punjab didn’t suffer much from the leak, thanks to the publicity the film garnered through its legal fight with CBFC; the Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Urvashi Rautela starrer may suffer coz of the leak as there are still 17 days left for the movie to release on the big screens. Considering the wide range of torrent and increased internet accessibility, the film’s future is doomed unless the makers file a case against the pirators. There are no reports of any formal complaints being filed with the police by the makers of Great Grand Masti yet. The Mumbai Police has taken strict actions in cases like this in the past. An owner of a torrent site was arrested by Mumbai Police in connection with the leak of Udta Punjab.
It’s uncanny how the Censor Board copies of these films leak on internet. It has become quite common for films to leak online before its release in today’s times, Udta Punjab and Manjhi being a few recent examples. While Udta had big stars like Kareena Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt to ensure that viewers come to the theatres, small films struggle to reach the second week in such scenarios.
