Online piracy is a big problem in India when it comes to movies. Within a few days of release of a movie, we search for its pirated copies.
Arin Mandal, too tried downloading the movie from torrent just 3-4 days after its release and got trolled in return.
He shared his experience on Facebook.
After downloading a 3.8 GB file, this is what he got. A video from the filmmakers asking the viewers to go to the theatres and watch and the film.
This is how Twitter responded to the video.
While some thought it is the most creative way to send anti-piracy message...
