Makers of Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay file a case against Kamaal R Khan
We revealed to you first how self proclaimed film critic Kamaal R Khan LEAKED Ajay Devgn‘s Shivaay online. One post that we saw was captioned as the “First scene of #Shivaay.” Though he deleted the tweet, the makers of Shivaay are furious. Kamaal R Khan had slammed Shivaay‘s trailer too. In fact, Ajay exposed KRK’s malicious intent too. The Shivaay team released a voice recording of the film’s producer Jayantilal Gada and KRK where the critic confessed taking money from Karan Johar to badmouth Shivaay and praise the Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil that is set to clash with their film. The Deshdrohi actor then went on a Twitter rant against Shivaay and Ajay Devgn, post which he even held a press conference where he told that he was just joking. While the makers remained silent, they have now initiated legal action against Kamaal R Khan for leaking parts of the movie.
Yes, the producers – Reliance Entertainment has filed a case against Kamaal R Khan and we have all the details. In an EXCLUSIVE interaction with us, Shibasish Sarkar (COO, Reliance Entertainment) revealed to us, “We are taking strict legal action and filing a complaint with the cyber crime in Mumbai. We have also written to all the social media platforms like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook too coz when any kind of piracy happens, we take stringent action including criminal action.”
But as Kamaal R Khan has deleted the clips, will he still be in trouble? Shibasish mentioned, “Yes, we have taken all the video screenshots, so there is proof that he has been videotaping from inside the hall. We have traced the hall in Dubai also and we have started to take action against the theatre owners also and we have asked them how someone is taking video from inside the hall. We have proof that he had started pirating the film from inside the hall.”
Many of you must be confused about how KRK managed to see the film while it releases tomorrow. Sarkar added, “What has happened is that, you know in the Middle East the films open one day before, KRK has started to copy the film from inside the cinema and has started putting those videos.” A
So what kind of punishment are the Shivaay makers expecting? Shibasish said, “In any country where the laws are stringent, the people go behind bars. So definitely a film made with a year of effort and money of investors, we should take strict action against any kind of piracy. It happens regularly these days and hence we will take very strict action.”
