Telugu movie star Vijay Deverakonda, who faced the reality of piracy with his new film, Geetha Govindam, while leaked online, says he is in danger with the film industry. The instant correction of the crime saved the situation. But Vijay talked about the rampant and the ramifications of piracy.
"When I learned that our film was leaked online, it was extremely painful, you suddenly realize how insensitive people are to the efforts, energy, careers and futures involved, the scale of loss for one of the country's major economic activities – a lot of people are ravaging the entertainment industry. "
Vijay believes his film managed to escape the damage just in time. "Because we were lucky, there were others who saw what was happening and they faced those who were looking at the pirate's footprints, and then informed my team with screens and evidence of what was happening.

"Many students started to tell me what and where it was happening. My production company immediately organized an operation with the help of various police forces and task forces, "said Vijay.
Now the post-production company that is supposed to be the loss was taken over.
"The company from which this loss occurred is clearly compromised. Management is not doing anything to control its employees. Yes, I think a case is leveled by the production company against them. And future work will not be given to them. A lot of production companies that have their films post-produced in this company are re-evaluating their situation and finding alternatives. "
Vijay believes that the punishment for film piracy is not enough." We as a species seem to be working only in order because of fear. So, unless the punishment for such property theft is not very severe, the idiots with access will run the risk of chills at low cost.
