For the first time, an FIR has been filed against Tamil Rockers, the web portal known for releasing pirated versions of latest movies. The website, which has a good number of followers, is known for releasing new Tamil films on the very same day of its theatrical release.
Several complaints have been made against the website. However, it is the first time that a case has been registered against them. The action has been taken based on a complaint made by a member of the producer council.
The website has been posing a serious threat to Tamil cinema for many years. Though the industry has been trying to fight against the menace, there seems to be no stopping them.
On a related note, the makers of the upcoming movie Tamizh Padam 2.0 recently announced the release date of the movie while taking a dig at Tamil Rockers. The poster had a sarcastic mention of the movie’s release date on Tamil Rockers website as well.
