The Business of Show Business: Producers Fight to Register Patriotic Movie Titles post Pulwama Attack
GUWAHATI: According to a report filed on Huffington Post, hours before Wing Commander Abhinandan's release from Pakistan, Bollywood Producers are fighting to register Patriotic movie titles post the recent tension on the LOC.
Producers fought to register titles like Balakot, Surgical Strikes 2.0, Pulwama Attacks and 'Abhinandan.'
On February 26, the day India launched air strikes on Pakistan, was an unusually busy day at the cramped up offices of the Indian Motion Pictures’ Producers’ Association (IMMPA) in Andheri, Mumbai as representatives of at least 5 different production companies rushed to reserve jingoistic movie titles for films that they hoped to make in the future.
It is to be mentioned that the success of Uri: The Surgical Strike has prompted a surge of titles focused on the India-Pakistan conflict, a review of titles registered in February reveals.
To register a title, all a production house needs to do is fill a simple form, with 4-5 alternative titles in order of preference, and pay a sum of Rs. 250 along with 18 per cent GST.
