Who leaked Premam's Censor copy?

A lowdown on all the goings-on in the Malayalam film industry.


The overwhelming response for Alphonse Puthren’s Premam, which released on May 29 and has been running to packed houses everywhere, came as a great relief to the Malayalam film industry.

The film is heading for the collection records created by such hits as Drishyam and Bangalore Days.

But things went horribly wrong when the copy meant to seen by the censor board for editing of the film started spreading like wildfire through various websites and local DVD vendors.

Producer Anwar Rasheed filed a complaint with the anti-piracy cell  and when he felt that industry organisations were not giving him enough support in combating piracy, he submitted his resignation.

Fingers have been pointed at two studios where the post-production work was done, at the Censor Board, and even at those who handled the copies from the film’s production team. Investigations are going on.
