Karthikeya team is extremely tensed despite the stupendous success of the film. This is because Andhra Film Chamber of Commerce failed miserably to curb the pirated versions of the film doing rounds online.
To the shock of the Karthikeya film unit, quality of the pirated version is perfect in rougue sites. It is known that generally pirated versions will be unclear and noisy but Kartikeya’s pirated version which was uploaded on the first day itself is extremely clear.
Film unit are blaming a couple who are not doing enough to track the criminals. A furious unit member says, “Both husband and wife are drawing a salary of 1,35,000 per month (85,000 for husband and 50,000 for wife) but they haven’t done anything for us. Adding to our woes, they asked us to browse for the links and pass it on to them to take action, while its their job” . He laments “If It’s a big star film,
they would put all the efforts to curb it, but for small films, they have no time”.
Kartikeya starring Nikhil, Swathi directed by Chandu Mondeti is getting good response at the box office.
