A person has been arrested in connection with the leakage of scenes from Baahubali-2.
The movie’s producer Shobu Yarlagadda said in an online statement: “It is very unfortunate that a small unfinished video clip of @BaahubaliMovie was leaked online yesterday. Person responsible for the leak was identified with the help of security features in place and was arrested late last night by Police and handed over to cyber crime.”
“Sincere thanks to our fans who have alerted us very early and the local police and cyber crime division for their prompt response. We have many security features to deter precisely these kind of situations.”
“However, film making is collaborative effort involving hundreds of people across multiple locations and we need to work on trust! Sometimes in very rare cases this trust is not maintained leading to this unpardonable and unfortunate situation,” Shobu concluded.
Some of the war episodes from Baahubali 2 have been leaked online and they have been making rounds across the social media. This left the makers of Baahubali in shock.
In a statement, they said, “We are making every effort to ensure that the leaked content is not in the public domain. We would be grateful if you can cooperate with us in this effort.”
They added: “We request you not to share the content and report any links on internet or social media to email@example.com.”
