Reliance BIG Pictures and Madras Talkies extensively released their film Raavan
in around 2200 screens worldwide making it the first Indian film to release simultaneously in Hindi Tamil and Telugu versions.
The film worked primarily in multiplexes in metros but the business was poor in single screens and interiors.The film opened to negative reviews and fared badly at the box office though it subsequently acquired cult status. Sources say Raavan doesn’t seems to have any scope at the box office.
Suhashini Mani Ratnam, irked by the poor response to the film, has reportedly blamed the pirated DVDs a reason for the failure of Raavan.
It is in news that actress Suhashini Mani Ratnam was annoyed over the use of pirated DVDs of Raavanan doing rounds in the outside market.
The actress has met the Chennai Commissioner of Police T Rajendran to take action against the pirated DVD’s and save the movie ‘Raavanan’.
Suhasini while talking to the journalists after lodging the complaint said “Pirated DVDs of the movie were brought to Chennai from Puducherry and other neighboring States. We have also lodged a complaint to Puducherry Chief Minister Vaithyalingam. “
“The police chief has immediately requested his subordinates to look into the issue”, the actress added further.
Suhasini however denied the alleged involvement of the people in the film industry in bringing out the pirated versions.
