The first look teaser of the much-awaited Rajinikanth starrer film '2.0' had been screened internally by the movie’s team. The teaser for the 'Robot' sequel was shown in the US at a conference, and some miscreants decided to leak the first look, shooting it secretly on their mobile phones.
This happened a few hours before another teaser was supposed to be screened on TV, after being shown at an awards function earlier. The makers are fuming since fans across social media are now watching the teaser.
“The makers have exercised copyright action, and have gotten some of the uploads removed. However, a few people have downloaded and uploaded it again. This makes it practically impossible to remove the hordes of videos from across the world,” says a trade source.
Trade analyst Ramesh Bala says, “In the video, you can even see the person hosting the event at the conference, where the making of the teaser is shown. It’s more of a ‘work in progress’ teaser. The makers, including director Shankar, must be in shock right now, because they’re not reacting at the moment, and are trying to find out how this happened.”
The film is slated to release during Diwali now, and the official teaser is to release only sometime in August....
