Kamaal R Khan aka KRK, who claims to be a film critic on social media, has landed himself in a big trouble after he leaked parts of Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay online through his Twitter handle.
According to reports, KRK had recorded the opening scenes of the film from a theatre in Dubai.
While the motive behind posting the scenes of Shivaay, which releases this Friday is not known, Ajay had recently accused him of working against his film at the behest of Karan Johar, whose Ae Dil Hai Mushkil also releases tomorrow.
Faced with a potential lawsuit and criminal charge, KRK has deleted his tweet, but the makers of Shivay appears in no mood to let him go unpunished.
A report in BollywoodLife said that the the producers of the film, Reliance Entertainment, have already filed a case against KRK.
The COO of Reliance Entertainment, Shibasish Sarkar, was quoted as saying, “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 because when any kind of piracy happens, we take stringent action including criminal action.”
Sarkar hinted that KRK deleting his tweets may not be enough for him to escape the law.
He said, “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.”
