Aditya Chopra shows his generous side, shares screens with ‘Great Grand Masti’

Aditya Chopra had a three-week contract with theatre chains all over India for ‘Sultan’. But, due to online leak of ‘Great Grand Masti’, the makers of the adult-comedy decided to prepone the release of the film from July 22 to July 15. However, the screens were the problem, but Adi has agreed to share screens with ‘GGM’.

On Friday, there was a discussion on online leaks of the new releases which took place at Aamir Khan’s house. The meeting was attended by the producers like Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor. During the discussion the screens for ‘Great Grand Masti’ was the matter of concern.

A leading daily has quoted a source as saying, “Since Aditya Chopra was not present at the meeting, Aamir and the other bigwigs from film industry phoned Adi asking for theatres for ‘Great Grand Masti’. To his credit, Adi, who is known not to budge an inch to accommodate films of other producers, agreed to share theatres screening his ‘Sultan’ with ‘Great Grand Masti’.”

“This is a first for Adi. He realises the critical situation regarding piracy and online leaks, since ‘Sultan’ was also leaked,” the source added.
