K S Ravikumar?s Sarath Kumar starrer Jaggubhai was leaked on the Internet on 31st Dec 2009! It was slated to be released this Pongal. This has created much furore and actions are being taken by the necessary authorities to curb further downloads and views.
Radhika Sarath Kumar, chief of Radaan which is the producer of this film has personally met Mr Karunanidhi, Chief Minister, to seek help in curbing this problem before the news spreads. However, once something is on the Internet, there is only so much you can do. Although the leaked version does not have any voice overs or dubbed sequences, it is no doubt the job of an insider.
Apparantely the movie, Jaggubhai was leaked during the editing process as the leaked version of Jaggubhai had no voice overs or dubs and some shots were missing. Moreover the strings attached on the actors during the fight sequences were all clearly visible. K S Ravikumar has initiated an enquiry involving all technicians who were working on Jaggubhai post production. It is still unclear as to who the culprit is.
As the saga unfolds at K S Ravikumar?s table, a Coimbatore based Sankar Ganesh was arrested for uploading Jaggu Bhai on the net. A full fledged state wide riad was organized very swiftly upon receipt of complaint from Radhika Sarathkumar and 9000 pirated cd?s were taken into custody.
At the press conference held in view of the leaked full length video of Jaggubhai, Radhika Sarath Kumar was on the verge of tears. She mentioned specifically that the job is of ?someone amongst us? and ?he could have shot us instead of doing such a treacherous act.? Tollywood biggies such as Rajnikanth, Kamal Hassan and Surya were amongst the others who attended the press meet.
