Tamil films that hit the screens yesterday for the upcoming Pongal festival have fallen prey to online piracy on the day of the release itself. Both Rajinikanth‘s ‘Petta‘ directed by Karthik Subbaraj and Ajith starrer ‘Viswasam‘ directed by Siva are made available for free download by the infamous piracy website
The two film have been leaked online despite the court ordering 37 internet service providers (ISPs) to block over 12,000 websites. While the film has opened to a great response, infamous piracy website dealt a huge blow to the makers by leaking it online within hours of its release. Looks like online piracy is plaguing the industry. Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0’ was also leaked online by the same piracy website when the film released.
Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Petta is a throwback to the Rajini’s films back in 80s and 90s, and is the first collaboration between the director and the Thalaivar. Ajith’s ‘Viswasam’ if the fourth collabration between the actor and the director and it has Nayanthara playing the female lead.
