Hero movie team takes strict action against piracy

After the success of Namma Veettu Pillai, Sivakarthikeyan moves on to his next film Hero, directed by PS Mithran. The film features Arjun, Abhay Deol and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the lead roles. The makers promoted the film as a superhero venture which created a lot of curiosity amping up the audience of all age groups.

Hero hit the theatres worldwide on December 20 along with Jyothika and Karthik’s thriller film Thambi. Sivakarthikeyan’s film is receiving positive reviews from the audience so far and the real test for the film starts tomorrow (Saturday). Reports suggest that children and parents will lap up the film because of its message.
KJR Studios, who is associated with Hero, took stringent action against pirated websites. Every week, new releases get pirated and uploaded to multiple sites within a few hours of its release. To avoid that, the production house approached the court against piracy.
KJR Studios shared the photo of a legal document and wrote, “Respect the artist. Respect the art. Be a #HERO and say #NoToPiracy! We have acquired an interim from the Hon'ble High Court of Madras to restrain all internet service providers & cable TV operators from infringing our film. We hope you will support us. (sic)”
