MUMBAI: Looks like the release date of Mani Ratnam‘s Raavan did not match the stars of the film.
Not only has the film been getting a lukewarm reception at the box-office both nationally and internationally, its pirated prints were out on the day of its release on 18 June.
If that were not enough, the anti-piracy cell of the Mumbai police along with A.A. Khan & Associates seized 600 pirated prints of Raavan in raids between 18 to 20 June.
In a raid on 18 June at Andheri East, 1206 discs of Rajneeti, Kites, Prince of Persia were seized. In another raid on the following day at Dindoshi, a raiding party initially seized 300 prints of Raavan from an Activa bike that followed the seizure of several 6 in 1 DVDs of Raavan, Raajneeti, Prince of Persia, Kites, Ek Second ..Jo Zindagi Badal De and Badmaash Company among others. Again, in a raid on 20 June in Nalasopara, 314 discs of Raavan along with those of Rajneeti, Ironman 2, Prince of Persia and Kites were seized.
