Neeraj Pandey's 'Aiyaary' opened to lukewarm responses on the Box Office and if that wasn't enough, the film has been leaked online! According to reports, Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation Shivneri bus that runs between Mumbai and Pune played the pirated version of the film on its journey. There were some 'aware' citizens, who objected to the pirated version being played and took to their social media accounts to write about it.
Talking about the same, Aiyaary's producer, Jayantilal Gada spoke to Mumbai Mirror and said that strict actions will be taken against this act. He said, "Our teams will take action. We got the news today and we are considering legal actions. How can a government-run division make such a mistake? If the government will give way to piracy, then who will stop it?"
"It was a Shivneri bus numbered 9784, which started its run from Dadar today at 7.30am," said the producer.
However, this is an often-reported problem on the Mumbai-Pune route but is hardly reported to authorities. In the past too, many recent-released films were reportedly shown on the bus.
The film, which released this Friday has earned Rs 11.7 crore on its opening weekend.
