Three Months Later…
If it weren’t for Shan, Project Pi would have never seen the light of day. Though many film producers claimed to be behind the project, everyone knew that it was Shan’s brain child and most of them tacitly conceded to the fact behind closed doors. The going was not easy for Shan; it took tough lobbying and ego pampering to get a majority of Bollywood producers to go with him. At the end, Shan neither cared about recognition nor money; he just wanted to get the project through. When he finally accomplished the goal, Shan managed to put together 400 crores, a sum of 100 crores from his own coffers.
Consensus reached and funds handy, Shan set up a body to monitor, manage and implement the project. It was called the Alliance against Copyright Piracy, ACP for short. As it was the first ever producer coalition in India to fight piracy in an organized manner, ACP’s formation received unprecedented media attention. It was dubbed as the Shahenshah of Bollywood, in true filmy style. Shan, Zakir and Singh who were unanimously elected to the management team of ACP, worked hard to ignore the media attention and focus on the task at hand. Working in close proximity with Lamba and his team, ACP devised a time bound plan of action for implementation of the project and approved all steps in one shot. The strategy was to attack all levels in the piracy chain simultaneously and create a big bang. Given the detailed planning, sheer magnitude and unique multi-level approach, Shan was confident that it would produce terrific results.
Though Lamba did not share Shan’s confidence, he nevertheless went along. Viren’s image haunted him often, but the value of the project for his future always trumped his fears. It was the first of its kind offensive against piracy in the world and he knew it would be stupid of him to not be a part of it. Besides, the intimidating calls had surprisingly ceased since Helen’s visit, dipping his fear levels substantially. Weighing all factors, Lamba decided to take his chances with Project Pi and hoped that he would not regret his decision.
