After “Udta Punjab” and “Great Grand Masti” were leaked online prior to their release, the makers of the coming film “Dishoom” are gearing up to combat the threat of piracy. Prominent Hindi film producers and studio representatives met last week to discuss the issue.”The producers of John Abraham and Varun Dhawan-starrer ‘Dishoom’ are in the process of obtaining ‘John Doe’ order (order against anonymous entities) from the Bombay High Court, directing Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Telecom Operators and other platforms to ensure that any illegal content from ‘Dishoom’ is not made available on their services.

“This issue should not be treated in isolation as piracy for films, but the sheer impunity and brazenness with which this illegality is being propounded indicates a structured attempt to damage the industry on the whole and should be considered as a serious threat,” Mukesh Bhatt, President of the Film and Television Producers Guild of India, said in a statement here.”We require the highest level of probe from the intelligence services of the country and even an intervention by the Prime Minister,” he added.
