Reacting to the shocking incident, the makers have lodged a formal complaint, "we have filed a complaint with city police commissioner S. George. He has assured us that those responsible for the leak will be nabbed very soon," director Chimbu Deven has told a leading daily.
The filmmaker has also said that the team was actually planning to release the pictures officially before it was leaked online by some insiders without them being aware of it.
