Just a day after a lot of fuss over the piracy of Power Star Pawan Kalyan, cops seems to have cracked the case swiftly with in 24 hours. Cyber police, with whom producer BVSN Prasad has lodged a complaint, found a major breakthrough in the case after interrogating over 100 people of the film’s crew.
Cops have declared that one person, Chikati Arun Kumar, an editing assistant in BVSN Prasad’s office, is the responsible behind the whole issue who is the initiator for the leakage of the first half of film through pirated CDs and online versions. According to police, Arun Kumar has shared a DVD version of the film with a APSP constable who is a friend of him and through the constable the CD got transferred to Pedana of Krishna district and that’s where the CD was pirated and later kept in online. Currently, police have arrested both Arun Kumar and his constable friend (which police have not revealed his name) and investigation is going on. Cops are yet to confirm whether the two culprits have done this out of craze/ fun or with an idea to cheat the producer and production house and investigation is presently going on this front. Also, cops are trying to get more links of people who all indulged in online piracy version and efforts are being made to arrest all of them.
Looks like, cops have taken this incident (As pirated version is out in the market even before the theatrical release of film) very seriously unlike before as this is first of its kind and such thing never happened before in the history of Tollywood. Said to be a high-budget film made with around Rs 55 crore, the movie stars Pawan Kalyan, Samantha in the lead roles. Now, with major breakthrough coming in and culprits being arrested, all eyes are now on the film’s release i.e., on September 27 (this Friday). Let’s hope that audiences will prove that the pirates are wrong by making this film a huge hit at box office.
