If you thought planting stories in media was unethical then what we are about to tell you will certainly blow away your brains… and we mean literally! Last night an email was sent to us by a PR firm (Cosmic Spider) who is handling a film called Pocket Gangsters. We are pretty sure you haven’t heard about the film but that’s not the point. The subject of the mail read as: Hot Rape Scene from the film Pocket Gangsters featuring actors Shivangi Mehra, Madhur Mittal, Vijay Raaz and others. You read that right!

In a country where cinema has the power to influence people’s decision it’s gruesome that a film is being marketed from the rape angle.
