Jaaz Multimedia filed a General Diary (GD) at the Hatirjheel police station, complaining about the piracy of their horror film, “Jinn”.
The movie “Jinn” by Puja Chery and Shajal Noor was released during Eid and has been a hit in terms of box office revenue. However, some social media users have shared clips from the film that they find funny rather than scary.
According to the GD, a Facebook page called ‘T for Tasnia’ has illegally captured the movie “Jinn” from cinema halls. In addition, the report alleges that the page spread misinformation about the film on April 23, using sarcastic words with the recorded video, which “hampered” the film’s image.
The GD also stated that video piracy of the film and sarcastic comments being circulated on Facebook is causing damage to Jaaz Multimedia and that “Jinn” may suffer substantial business losses.
Shajal hopes to catch audience reactions at ‘Jinn’ screenings
Jaaz Multimedia also posted a status on their Facebook page today: “One Facebook page released an 11-minute video clip by recording it from the cinema hall. Since all our movies are synced on Facebook and YouTube, they have been deleted due to auto-claim. We are preparing to file a case against them on Sunday.
