It is very unfortunate to hear about how the movie has been circulating on pen drives and CDs, when so much goes into the making of a movie. One of these pen drives even landed in the hands of Remo D'souza as well.
In an interview with Spotboye, he revealed how a leaked copy came into his possession through his gym trainer.
He said, “My building's gym trainer, Vithal, came up to me and said that he had a pen drive which has the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. I thought he was joking, but he insisted that I believe him. I immediately told him to bring it to me.”
He further added, I opened up the pen drive and almost fell off from my chair. It was not the first half, but the entire second half. This implied that if this pen drive had started doing the rounds, it would have created havoc. I am a filmmaker and I know how the world comes crashing down if anybody's film from my fraternity is exposed before it hits theatres.
Piracy is, unfortunately, quite a common thing in the industry, with movies like ‘Udta Punjab' leaking just one day before the premier. People need to understand how much actually goes into making a movie, especially a movie like ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' and need to give up these unethical practices.
