Looks like Tamil actor Vishal is trying his level best to stop video piracy business in Tamil Nadu. The action hero again raided a video shop in Tirupur and has seized the CDs of the latest films, including Vijay's "Kaththi" and Vishal's "Poojai".
Vishal and his team informed the police and they have reportedly arrested the shop owner for selling the pirated videos. Meanwhile, one of the witnesses captured the video of the raid and has uploaded it online.
In the video, the furious actor is seen asking the shopkeeper to give him the CDs of "Kaththi" and "Poojai". Initially, he was reluctant to give them. Later, Vishal is also seen questioning him about the source and his motive of selling pirated copies.
Vijay's "Kaththi" and Vishal's "Poojai" were released for this Diwali and these pirated videos were caught at a juncture when both the films are running successful at the box office.
"Kaththi" is currently heading towards the ₹100 crore club in terms of its box office collection, whereas "Poojai" is said to be the biggest competitor for "Kaththi".
Soon after the raid, the official Twitter account of Vishal's production company "Vishal Film Factory", updated regarding the incident.
"Found a shop selling Poojai n Kaththi pirated cds in Palladam,Tirupur. Police intervened n arrested shop owner. Need to stop piracy. Alarming," tweeted Vishal Film Factory.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time Vishal has done something against piracy. Earlier, the actor had 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 took necessary actions.
Similarly, actor and director Parthibhan with the help of the Anti Video Piracy Cell of Crime Branch had also caught pirated video sellers in Burma Bazaar, Chennai.
