Director Arivazhagan's maiden web series, Tamil Rockerz is all set to stream on SonyLIV from August 19. The series dives into the deep and dark world of piracy and how it is affecting the film industry in a big manner. The series has Arun Vijay, Vani Bhojan and Ishwarya Menon in the lead.
Now, with just a few days to go for release, a video of the director talking about the need to curb piracy has been shared online. In the video, Arizhagan is seen saying that only those in the industry can feel the pain of piracy as they are the ones directly affected by it.
"The films we make, be it a 3 crore film or a 30 crore film, the mindset of the general audience is that we are earning a lot of money. But they don't know about the efforts we put in. We are the people from the industry, so we know the pain of piracy. So, I don't think that can be put into words. They will suddenly say they are earning in crores, what loss will you incur because of piracy. Only we know how big the loss is and how it is affecting the industry. So, be it my film, or anyone's else's that is a pain. Because even if ten people did not go to the movies but instead watched the film on pirated sites, that is a loss for us. So, in that way, the loss will always be with us.
Arun Vijay plays Rudhra, a cop who takes on the case of piracy, after the president of Tamil Film Producers Council (performed by Azhagam Perumal) urges him to. The supporting cast includes Azhagam Perumal, MS Bhaskar and Vinodini Vaidyanathan. Interestingly, Tamil Rockerz is Arun Vijay's maiden web series and it is bankrolled by AVM Productions.
