We all know that KGF refers to Kolar Gold Fields. Not just the name, the movie itself mint gold at the box office. The movie set a new benchmark at the box office. And the makers made a huge fortune from marketing this Kannada movie which was dubbed into several languages. Lead actor Yash, who is known as the rocking star in Sandalwood became a sensation overnight for his performance in the movie.
Despite the fact that it has been a year and a half that KGF Chapter 1 was released, the hype surrounding the movie refuses to die down. We all know the kind of viewership the movie got when it got released on Amazon Prime Video a few months ago.
Now, to cash in on the lockdown and get TRPs, a local Telugu cable TV channel has taken the illegal route. The Channel which goes by the name Every illegally telecast Yash's KGF Chapter 1 without buying the rights from the producers. This has angered the makers.
The creative producer of Hombale movies which bankrolled the film has warned the channel on Twitter saying they will sue the channel owners for illegal telecast of KGF Chapter 1. Have a look...
A telugu local channel named #Every^ is playing KGF film illegally. We will move legally against them and sue for their actions. While the satellite deal is on talks and almost finalised, a cable channel does this. We have ample proof woth screen shots, videos of the same. pic.twitter.com/UlxxguPWzg— Karthik Gowda (@Karthik1423) May 8, 2020
