A still from Vijay's Kaththi.Kaththi Facebook Page

Tamil star Vishal is now receiving showers of appreciation from everyone in the industry. The actor recently turned a superstar in real life too when he seized pirated videos of his latest flick "Poojai" and Vijay's "Kaththi".

Out of all the appreciations, one of them grabbed the attention of many. "Kaththi" star Vijay appreciated his contemporary and supported Vishal to fight against piracy. The "Pokkiri" actor, who was impressed by "Pandiya Naadu" actor's stand, told him he was proud of the latter's action. The message was conveyed through Vijay's official Twitter account.

"Proud of you@VffVishal. You have proved that actions speak more louder than words. Let's stop video piracy," tweeted Vijay.

Vishal Film Factory, the actor's production company also replied back to Ilayathalapathy.

"Dear vijay.. Thank you so much for your support .. It will make a huge difference. Let's stop piracy," tweeted Vishal Film Factory.

"Poojai" and "Kaththi" were released together on this Diwali and are still leading in box office collections. The joined move of the leading actors to curb piracy has received a lot of appreciation from the industry.

Reports suggest that the industry is taking the issue more seriously. Rumours are doing the rounds that on 16 November, all shooting will come to a standstill from 1 pm as the members of film fraternity and various trade unions in the industry are set to arrange a meeting regarding the issue.

For the uninitiated, Vishal had recently busted two piracy cases. The first case was when the actor caught local cable channels in Karaikudi for telecasting the latest films "Vadacurry" and "Un Samayal Arayil" on air. The actor soon visited the channel office along with police officials and the cable operators and owners were arrested.

Recently, Vishal and his team confiscated pirated videos of "Kaththi" and "Poojai" from a video shop in Tirupur. The team soon informed the police and got the video seller was also arrested.

Meanwhile, actor-director Parthiban also initiated an anti-piracy raid at a DVD store in Burma Bazaar, Chennai and the team got over 25,000 pirated DVD's of Parthiban's directorial "Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam".
