Charlie, the recently released Dulquer Salmaan movie has already emerged as a blockbuster. But sadly, the movie has fallen prey to piracy within this short span, to the much disappointment of the makers and the industry.
The pirated CDs of Charlie are for sale in the street shops of Bangalore city. The CDs, which costs around 30-40 Rs are high on demand. Earlier, CDs of some popular Malayalam movies were also found in the same way.
The release of pirated CDs within such a short period of release is a very common thing for the other industries, including Bollywood and Tamil. But it is a very rare thing for the Malayalam industry.
Charlie, which is directed by Martin Prakkat and written by Unni R, is all set to emerge as the biggest solo hit of Dulquer Salmaan and lead actress Parvathy's careers. The movie has already crossed 10 Crores gross collection.
The censored copy of Nivin Pauly starrer Premam had leaked on internet, which led into huge controversies and badly affected the theatre performance of the movie. The piracy issue is undoubtedly a huge threat to the movie business.
