- "We got the man arrested," said actor Vishal Krishna
- "It wasn't an easy job," Vishal added
- Rajinikanth's 'Kaala' hit theatres on Thursday
Vishal, who has lately become a prominent voice of the Tamil film industry and who heads Tamil Nadu Films Producers' Council (TFPC), said: "It could have been a major crisis," after the incident on Wednesday. "We got the man arrested after he had streamed 40 minutes of 'Kaala' on Facebook. (This was prior to its release in India on Thursday). The important thing was to take action without delay. That we managed to do," the actor added.
Vishal Krishna, who is gearing up for his bilingual release Irumbhai Thirai, said that doing the job "wasn't easy" since the crime was committed outside the country. "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," Vishal Krishna told IANS.
