Pawan Kalyan-starrer "Attarintiki Daaredhi", the release of which got delayed for nearly two months, was leaked online Sunday. Its makers are furious and are now planning to release the film at the earliest.
Around 90 minutes of the film was illegally released online.
"We came to know that someone uploaded 90-minute footage of the film illegally. We have traced that the leak happened in California, US. We will seek the help of the cyber department in this matter and take necessary action immediately. We are now planning to release the film by weekend," a source close to the film's producer told IANS.
"We have requested that all the piracy links be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Fans of Pawan Kalyan have already spread the word online and several links have already been shut down," he added.
Directed by Trivikram, "Attarintiki Daaredhi" was originally scheduled to release Aug 9, but it was later postponed due to ongoing political turmoil in the state.
"We are planning to release 'Attarintiki Daaredhi' this weekend," Pawan Kalyan's agent posted on Twitter.
The film, which also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Pranitha, Boman Irani and Nadhiya, is produced by B.V.S.N. Prasad.
On hearing the news about the leak, Samantha posted on Twitter: "Support 'Attarintiki Daaredhi'. There was a lot of hard work and a lot of money invested. Let good cinema win. Our humble request".
