Baahubali Campaign Against Piracy Targets Anyone Who Downloads

Even as theatres gear up for the release of S.S Rajamouli’s magnum opus, Baahubali, members of the team, along with key stakeholders of the Telugu film fraternity, have launched a campaign against piracy. Warning theatre owners that they would be banned from screening any movie for a year if they were found aiding piracy, the filmmakers have also included a special code in the film to track pirated content.


Producer Allu Aravind said that the film has also been granted a “John Doe order”, an order of injunction issued against unknown persons. This order allows authorities to take into custody anyone found downloading a pirated copy of the film.

Starring Rana Daggubati, Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Tamannah Bhatia, the film has been made on a budget of Rs. 250 crore and will release on 4000 screens. Baahubali releases in cinemas on Friday in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam.
