Six people arrested for trying to extort money from the makers of ‘Baahubali 2’

SS Rajamouli’s epic saga ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’ has smashed every possible record in India and is also winning hearts overseas. While the movie has many die-hard fans catching a screening twice and thrice, there are some miscreants trying to extort money from the makers of the film. A report in Mid-Day states that the police of Hyderabad arrested six people for trying to extort money from Karan Johar and other producers. Reportedly, the extortionists demanded a huge sum of Rs 15 lakh from the movie makers and even threatened to circulate a pirated version if they are not paid the amount.

Amongst those arrested, one is the owner of theatre in Bihar. The police stated that the gang has been a regular at making pirated copies of Hindi films. Well, it’s extremely saddening that such things happen with our filmmakers. We truly hope that such kind of situations are avoided and the culprits are punished.

As far as the movie is concerned, many B-Town celebs who have seen the movie are all praises for the content. The movie has already grossed Rs 1000 crore worldwide and emerged as the most successful movie of this year. The lead actor Prabhas has been enjoying all the fame and adulation coming his way and the other actors like Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj are also being appreciated for their roles in the movie.
