The main worry for small time producers of this generation coming with good concepts is piracy. Indiscriminate release of piracy CD’s of all the latest releases with in one to two days after the movie release is a big cause of concern for producers and distributors.
One of the most worried producer’s these days seems to be hero turned producer Shivaji who produced ‘Taj Mahal’ on a very fancy amount which is to be released on 20th of the month. ‘After working for 18 hours a day for 12 years, I earned something. All that is earned is put to production of this movie ‘Taj Mahal.’ Pirate CD makers may profit at least one lakh rupees for releasing the piracy of my movie. Iam ready to pay that one lakh to all of such people, but I request them not to get involved in such illegal activities with this Taj Mahal,’ requested Shivaji.
Yes, small time producers like Shivaji will be the first and foremost effected by this ruthless piracy mafia. Let, these kinds of producers survive.
