Swara Bhaskar’s Anaarkali of Aarah has been raking in rave reviews for the brilliant portrayal of the heratland and the issues that plague the society in the interiors of India. But little did the makers know that a month before the release of the film, the edited scenes will make their way to the Internet.
Around three bold scenes from the film featuring Swara, were leaked on the web on Tuesday evening. The incident left the makers and the entire team shocked. The three scenes allegedly are the ones which the CBFC called for a cut from the movie.
Reacting on the issue, the director of the film Avinash Das seemed worried, “I had no clue about this. I got to know only when you told me. Let me see what can be done,” he told HT.
Not just that, now the director fears the whole film being leaked. “t is sad. I now fear the entire film might be leaked online before the release. If the censor copy of Udta Punjab could be leaked, the threat looms large for my movie as well.”
He also added, “There are a lot of people who have their hands on the footage one has for a film. I guess one of the people decided to do this.”
The movie releases on March 24.
