Nikhil Kumaraswamy’s joy over the success of his latest movie Rider has lasted only for two days. His movie’s pirated version is available in the market within 48 hours of its release at theaters across Karnataka. “The news of the pirated version of my movie is a big shock for me.
I appeal to Kannada movie buffs not to encourage and support the pirated version of my movie. I appeal to them to watch Rider on the silver screen,’’ he says.
He said the producer of Rider had spent a lot of money and the pirated version of this movie would affect box-office collections. “I was very happy with the response my movie received from Kannada movie buffs on Friday when it was released. A few hackers had indulged in pirating my movie,’’ he says.
He said the Rider is one of the best movies that has all the ingredients to keep mass as well as family audiences happy while watching it at theaters.
