Vishal Krishna currently cresting  the  box-office with his Tamil /Telugu digital-crime thriller Irumbhai Thirai/Abhimanyudu proved a real-life hero for Rajinikanth when  on Wednesday evening, Vishal averted a major digital crime  just in time by getting an overzealous Rajini fan arrested in Singapore as he was caught pirating the new Rajini starrer Kaala.

Vishal Krishna  who has lately become  a prominent voice of  the Tamil film industry and who heads  Tamil film industry’s Tamil Nadu Films Producers’ Council(TFPC) says, “It could have been  a major crisis. Kaala is  a big film for us. Rajini Sir is coming back  after two years. To our horror we got to know through our sources in Singapore that a man in the Cathay multiplex was live-streaming Kaala on Facebook.”

Vishal and his team swung into action immediately.  “We got the man arrested in Singapore after he had streamed forty minutes  of Kaala on Facebook. The  important thing was to take action without delay. That we  managed  to do.”

It wasn’t an easy job. “We had to push really hard for his arrest as this was a crime committed outside India. But now that  it’s done the  arrest sends out the right signal to all potential piracy offenders who  may not even be aware that they are  guilty. Lots of  people think recording scenes and songs on their phone is okay. But  it is not okay. It is a serious crime. We want the potential offenders to know we  have zero tolerance for piracy in any form. If we want to save  the  film industry we  need  to stop talking and  start acting.”
