When Kiccha Sudeep’s Pailwaan released in theatres, a high-definition pirated copy of the film was out by the time its first show was over. At the time, Sudeep was keen to get to the bottom of it and had tweeted that he was more interested in the pirate than the piracy itself. The team was quite upset about the development. Yet despite this turn of events, the actor says that his fans supported the film in theatres quite well. Now, as his next, the much-anticipated Vikrant Rona gears up for release, the actor knows that it may also fall victim to piracy, even though the majority of the versions will be in 3D.
When asked what he intends to do about the film’s possible piracy, Sudeep said, “I don’t think I can control bad intention; I can control traffic, I can control emotions, and to some extent the pain my friends are going through. But if people declare war against me in their minds, I don’t know who my enemies are and I can’t fight them. God bless them. When the Pailwaan piracy happened, my fans supported me immensely, even though a copy was out by the time the first show was over; that is what I treasure and what means a lot to me. With Vikrant Rona, I think I have made a beautiful film. If you think that you will get the theatrical experience on the screen of your mobile phone, please watch it there only. But if you watch it on your phone and then feel that something was missing, my humble request is that you should come to the theatre and watch it. I am okay either which way.”
The actor was speaking at the launch event of Kichchaverse for NFTs and membership opportunities that will allow fans to attend the red carpet premiere of Vikrant Rona in Dubai on July 26. The film is releasing in theatres worldwide on July 28.
