After several mega-budget movies had become easy victim to piracy lately, it came as a wake-up call for the Indian film industry. Another movie that has become a goal that is vulnerable to piracy is Dishoom. Starring Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and John Abraham, Dishoom is slated to release on July 29.
Within an interview to news agency, Bhatt said,
"We've received a shocking news a pirate site torrent is advertising that 'Dishoom' will soon be shown. In case a pirate site advertises that there will be a leak, there could be nothing more frightening for a producer.
Media was told by Bhatt how everyone who was involved with the production of the movie had to run to Bhatt’s office. Bhatt went on to praising the censor board. He said,
For comprehending our issue, I want to applaud them. They've proved it by saying,' Perhaps it is possible to give the DVD after release if you feel that it could leak from here, for the protection and psychological comfort.'” Thanking Nihalani, Bhatt added, "I want to thank Pahlaj Nihalani sahab and the CBFC for understanding our pain."
Bhatt revealed that now several discussions will take place and in case nothing happens, the filmmakers will approach Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other agencies regarding the same.
