Pawan Kalyan hit back with a vengeance with Gabbar Singh not too long ago, after experiencing a string of average to bad movies. Powerstar has now bought the rights for the famous title. Next up is Attarintiki Daredi, which promises true Pawanism style entertainment with a beautiful doll like Samantha for a heroine.
The hype that built gradually for this film has nothing to do with the filmmakers' promotion. The simple thought of Pawan giving us a clean, witty comedy was enough to drive up anticipation for AD. Once the teaser released, everyone went crazy over the superb look. Then came the audio release. Pawan's speech and sensitivity towards everyone made him the darling of the masses.
With the songs hitting the right chord, the wait for Attarintiki Daredi turned from pleasant anticipation to feverish wait. When the release date was announced, thousands were counting the days. Unfortunately, state agitations against bifurcation blazed fire all over Andhra Pradesh, sending producers running for new dates. Hence, AD release was postponed thrice, keeping a check on the political pulse of the state.
Disappointment turned to sadness, which in turn turned to fans picking up bit and pieces of each update that was announced or leaked. It was at this time of severe thirst that someone with access to the film's content decided to make a profit. Suspected to be a distributor friend of AD director, he leaked half the film to pirates waiting for the opportunity. They passed on the high quality video to all sections. The leaked content spread like wild fire.
Shocked over the leak, fans and industry people jumped into the field, trying to find the roots of the evil and punish the cancerous criminals. A US IP address has also been traced as one of the evils responsible for the piracy, besides many small time CD sellers. Pawan has promised to bear the losses from this incident. Still, one area where every Telugu person should do their bit is the online spread of leaked AD files. Be the better person and send leaked content to AP Film Chamber.
