Piracy group, Tamil Rockers in response to a challenge they had the pirated version of the film on their website. The film's director Shankar and the whole team of 2.0 have urged moviegoers to watch the film in theatres and oppose piracy. Lyca Productions have filed a lawsuit and over 2000 portals belonging to Tamil Rockers have been blocked. 2.0 starring superstar Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar has been made with a mammoth budget of 600 crores and released today in 3D in various languages.
Piracy has become a nuisance in the industry. From Taxiwala to Geeta Govidham to Aravindha Sametha, all the block buster movies were victims of piracy. This will surely teach a lesson to those sites a good lesson and create a fear in them.
