‘Turkey is a big centre for Indian film piracy’

PANAJI: Demanding strong legislature against film piracy, actor and BJP politician Vani Tripathi on Tuesday said that weaker laws and failure to control the crime is creating a big hole in filmmakers' pockets.
"Movies are getting pirated within hours of their first screenings and at times, even before that. Turkey is a big centre for this racket as a lot of Indian movies are screened at their film festivals before going elsewhere and thus are sold outside in the open market," Tripathi said, adding that the film industry has to talk in one voice as this is their responsibility.

Talking about the changing discourse around women and commerce in cinema along with director Aniruddha Roy Choudhary and actress Tannishtha Chatterjee, Tripathi said that the recent success of women oriented movies like Pink and NH 10 showcased the changing narrative.
"Content is the king and we have actually taken a step backward after making a movie like Mother India. Now the recent trends show that a positive change is coming and women actors are getting more meaningful roles," Tripathi said.
The thoughts were affirmed by director Aniruddha Roy Choudhary, who shared that the influx of corporate houses into the film industry started a race towards making monetary success and with that the content got compromised.
"No one can guess if a movie will be a hit . The quality of content just increases the probability. With the success of movies with women as the central character, we are witnessing a slow yet steady change," Choudhary said, adding that the introduction of the digital sphere with a host of web series and movies will certainly democratize the whole entertainment industry.
"The charm of the 75mm will remain but the induction of internet-based content from around the world will force the filmmakers to improve their movies as the audience will expect something on par of what they're watching on the web."
