A fake trailer of the upcoming Sanjay Dutt-starrer Zilla Ghaziabad is on YouTube, claiming to be the film’s official preview. It already has over 40,000 views.
Furious about the same, the makers have filed an official complaint with the cyber crime department in Mumbai.
Producer Vinod Bachahan says that the “hoax” trailer is misleading for the audience: “We haven’t even revealed the look of the film or any stills yet, and the trailer on YouTube has nothing to do with our film. Such promos can convey a wrong impression about the film, and that is unacceptable.”
Vinod is yet to decide the release date of Zilla Ghaziabad, which also stars Vivek Oberoi and Arshad Warsi. The film is based on
a true story about conflicts between two gangs — that of Satbir Gujjar (played by Vivek Oberoi) and Mahender Fauji (played by Arshad Warsi ) — in Ghaziabad. Earlier, the film ran into trouble when it faced protests from the villages of the two slain criminals.
Thanedaar Returns is Sanjay Dutt's third cop role in a year. After Ram Gopal Varma's Department and the forthcoming Zilla Ghaziabad, Dutt will again be shown as a cop.
But producer Aggarwal is unperturbed, "If you've seen the original film Saamy (2003 Tamil film directed by Hari starring Vikram and Trisha) you'd know this is a cop film unlike any other."
However, Vinod Bachchan the producer of Zilla Ghaziabad doesn't think so. In a panic mode on hearing about yet another cop film, Bachchan apparently got in touch with Sanjay Dutt requesting that his film be completed at the earliest. FULL STORY
