The movie was banned by the state government before its scheduled release on February 11. An FIR was also registered against the producers of the movie at Mohali. The film was also banned in Haryana later. Later the film got leaked on the internet.
Advocate HC Arora, who had written to the state government to impose a ban on the movie, alleged that the leak is a deliberate attempt by its producers to promote the film.
“It appears to be a deliberate attempt to take the movie to the people across the world. It is a breach of the government’s order imposing the ban on the movie. An FIR should be registered against its producers,” he added, “According to Section 7 of Cinematography Act, exhibition of such a film attracts prosecution which may result into imprisonment of its producers for three years,” he added
The debutant actor Jayy Randhawa took it to his social media handle to announce that the film will hit the big screens post the Corona Virus crisis when the cinemas will reopen. The authority has given a green flag for the release of the film. He wrote in the caption, “Good news -Shooter will be in theaters After corona . ❤️Please saare saath deo te film theatre vich jaake jrur dekheo . Asi eh film tuhade sarea lyi hi banayi hai”
