"I first called Akshay sir, but since he was in London, he was unavailable. Then I called up Prerna Arora, the producer, told her about the situation, Director Shree Narayan Singh came and collected the pen drive from me. They will be taking legal action against piracy, and I will talk to Akshay sir once he is back," Indian Express quoted Remo D'Souza as saying.
On Friday, Akshay Kumar urged everyone to 'fight against piracy' in a statement to the media.
"The fight against piracy is critical and it's reassuring to see the swift action taken by the Crime Branch on the unfortunate incident involving our film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. I would like to urge my friends, colleagues, fans and audiences to join us as we fight piracy. Thank you all for your support," he said.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha deals with the need of sanitization in the country and is based on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swacch Bharat campaign. The film has been co-produced by Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha also stars Anupam Kher and Sana Khan in pivotal roles.
