Vijay's Sarkar is all geared up for mammoth release on Tuesday with the makers and distributors in excitement after the huge pre-release business. But a tweet from the piracy giant, Tamil rockers has shaken them now.
Tamil Rockers Twitter handle tweeted that they will be releasing HD print of Sarkar online, only in hours after the theatrical release.
Shocked Tamil Film Producers Council issued a statement, asking all the theater owners and handlers to deploy personnel in theaters to prevent recording the film on cell phones and other cameras. The council also mentioned the 'challenge' of Tamil Rockers and stressed that it is our responsibility to make sure that the film will not get pirated.
Tamil Rockers is one film piracy website, which challenged many films earlier and released the piracy versions online. Many Tamil film bigheads tried their best to put the website down, but their attempts went vain.
Vijay's 'Sarkar' is directed by AR Murugadoss with Keerthy Suresh and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar in other main roles. The story revolves around an NRI entrepreneur who wishes to change the present political scenario in the state. There was a plagiarism controversy regarding the film, but now it was sorted out as the director Murugadoss agreed to give credits to the writer who also registered the similar plot as Sarkar.
