Speaking at the ‘Shoot the Pirates’ talk marathon organized by online streaming player Hero Talkies, Producer JSK said, ”This is a very good initiative by Hero Talkies. It is believed that movies are being pirated from abroad shows so only we decided to release our movie ‘Nalu Policum Nalla Irundha Ooru’ in Tamilnadu first but it still got pirated from Thirunelveli in the first show itself. To curb piracy we just have to find out from where it is originating. We would like to know more useful information and details from you guys.”
”Not just in Tamil cinema, piracy is there everywhere. There is no proper awareness among the audience and they do not understand that it is a crime. This marathon’s aim is to make them realize this. People can watch this marathon live on Facebook, Youtube and in Hero talkies website” said Hero Talkies’s marketing head Jagan.
”We decided to organize an awareness campaign against piracy. We feel we are qualified enough to do such a campaign and marathon” said Hero Talkies co-founder Aadhi. He also released slogans against piracy.
