Zubeen Garg- the singer-composer, a seasoned director, and also an actor has put up a new appeal to his “comrades” on his Twitter handle in the early hours of Thursday.
He wrote, “It’s a request from me.all my comrades they shud report to stop mission china n Kanchanjangha showing on YouTube .all comrades report in YouTube n stop it please.”
The singer has appealed to his fans and well-wishers to report on the streaming of the movies Kanchanjanga and Mission China on YouTube. These two popular movies were made by the artiste himself.
The movie Mission China was released in 2017 and became an instant hit with the fans of Garg. Many cine-goers of the state adored the movie while some voiced their critics as well. In 2019, Kanchanjangha found its release in the theatres of the state and it even went on to become the highest-grossing Assamese movie. It was however replaced by Ratnakar starring Jatin Bora.
However, owing to the anti CAA unrest in the state and then the subsequent COVID-19 pandemic the Assamese film scenario, just like every other entertainment sector faced a severe backlash.
In the month of May-June NK Bigstar app was launched which has a rooster of Assamese movies- old and new, including both Kanchanjangha and Mission China. However, allegedly someone recorded the two movies and then uploaded it on YouTube, thereby affecting the business of the OTT platform.
