Superstar Rajinikanth’s Darbar which hit the screens on January 9, is off to a fantastic start at the box office and the film is expected to make huge numbers. This A.R.Murugadoss directorial features Rajinikanth as a cop after a long time and the fans are enjoying the film in the theatres. However, piracy and unofficial online streaming is always a threat for any newly released film and Darbar seems to be no exception. The film was uploaded on many piracy sites including Tamilrockers and it got spread virally.
As a worrying information, it has now been learnt that an unknown person has shared the full film on Whatsapp and has requested the people of Tamil Nadu, not to watch the film in the theatres. This has come as a shock for the team of Darbar as they have worked with full passion and conviction for close to a year. The film is said to be spreading rapidly on to many Whatsapp numbers. On that note, Lyca Productions has lodged a complaint with the Commissioner of Police, Cyber Crime Branch, requesting to stop the piracy and take necessary strict actions against the person who is involved in this.
It is a known fact that encouraging piracy is an offence, but unfortunately, Tamil cinema has always fallen prey to it. The photo of Lyca’s police complaint letter has been released officially online and it has been doing the rounds on social media. Considering the Pongal festive weekend, Darbar is expected to give a boosting start to this year’s box office. Let us hope for a positive result in this Whatsapp leak controversy and let the film run successfully in the theatres. Check out Lyca Productions’ complaint copy below:
