Chairman of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC), urge the police to take action against Stepping Out organization for screening Hindi movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ in the Amphitheatre of UB City on Sunday, February 12. Screening the movie outside authorized theatres is a clear violation of Cinematography Act, 1952.   


The Stepping Out organization had given the advertisement of screening of the movie on the occasion of Valentine’s Day and had sold tickets for ₹ 499. Hundreds of people had viewed the movie on Sunday night in Amphitheatre of UB City.


KV Dhananjay, film distributor had filed a complaint at KFCC against the organization. Now KFCC has filed complaint against the Steeping Out organization at Cubbon Park Police Station and asked to take legal action against the organization.   


Speaking to the media Sa.Ra. Govindu, Chairman of KFCC told that the chamber has brought this to the notice of Deputy Commissioner also. He told that illegal screening of movie is not only a violation of law but also this trend would damage the film industry.    


“We have spoken to the Deputy Commissioner and convinced him about the illegality of the screening” – Sa.Ra. Govindu


Recently some distributors tried to screen ‘Kabali’ in some 5 star hotels in Bengaluru. Then Deputy commissioner issued an order and cancelled the show.
