Nivin Pauly, the lead actor of Premam, is highly upset with the online leak of the movie and the stand taken by the authorities upon the issue. He stated his disappointment through his official Facebook page.
The actor has heavily criticized the authorities for not taking the issue seriously. Nivin is much disappointed with the disrespect shown towards cinema. He feels that issue would have been solved if the so-called 'cells' had responsibility.
He remarks that it is not an issue which only affects Anwar Rasheed, who produced Premam and it's crew members. Nivin Pauly reminds that the piracy issues will affect the future of Malayalam movie industry.
The leaked file is the censored copy of the movie; which is a much serious issue. Nivin insists that the people who done this should be caught as soon as possible. He also added that silence is not the solution for the issue.
The leaked censored copy of Premam has been going viral since last few weeks. Producer Anwar Rasheed has resigned from all film associations, on the grounds of the issue. Director Alphonse Puthren is also highly disappointed with the piracy.
Popular filmmakers B Unnikrishnan and Vinayan have offered complete support for Anwar Rasheed and Premam team. The investigation upon the issue had been progressing in various districts of Kerala.
