Apart from all the success that the film has made, it has faced several challenges and controversies while this one has costed the producers a lot. Tamilian actor Vishal Krishna was recently elected as the President of Tamil Film Producer’s Council. Members of the council have quoted in the police complaint that the producers of Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion have incurred massive loss due to piracy.
The complaint has been lodged against piracy website Tamil Rockers for uploading pirated versions of SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster movie Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.
The President and other members of the council claim that the film has suffered “humongous” losses because of piracy and requested the police to immediately take down all the illegal websites showing pirated versions of the film and charge the culprits for the same.
In its complaint, the council said it had identified many websites where Baahubali 2 was available for illegal download “right now” and their corresponding IP addresses. Released on April 28, the producers’ body said it had received a complaint from the makers of the film.
“We met the police commissioner on our complaint seeking action against piracy of Baahubali 2,” Council President and actor Vishal Krishna told reporters after meeting Singha along with some of his colleagues in the producers body. He said information related to illegal uploading of the film online was provided in the Council’s May 4 complaint.
For that matter, Tamil movies have to face several challenges apart from internet piracy, Cable TV piracy being one of them. According to reports, there are no takers for satellite rights of about 300 films, including blockbusters like Kabali and Theri due to this reason. Vishal said the issue of broadcast of films by some local cable television operators was also brought to the notice of the police official.
Vishal and team won the recently held elections for the producers’ council on the promises of checking the issue of piracy, which is rampant in Tamil film industry.
The pirated versions of Baahubali 2 were leaked online on the same day of its release on April 28. One of the film viewer in Kuwait allegedly live-streamed the film on his Facebook account.
However, these incidents did not stop the film from becoming the biggest hit in the history of Indian film industry.
