Few days ago, Vishal and Lyca Productions landed in a huge controversy in Kollywood when a whistleblower website Savukku Online claimed that Lyca Productions was behind some of the online piracy sites. The website further claimed that Vishal, despite knowing about it, didn’t take any measures to curb piracy and instead got into a deal with Lyca to make them produce his films.
The allegations rocked the industry and several people questioned how Vishal could do such a thing when he vowed to put an end to online piracy of Tamil films. However, Vishal trashed the rumours saying that they are completely baseless and that he and his team have been proactive in curbing piracy. Meanwhile, Lyca Productions too cleared the air about the claims saying that they had registered their domain name, which wasn’t renewed by the person who had redirected it to a piracy site in 2014.
“As an organization, Lyca Group has strongly advocated Anti Piracy norms and has taken extensive steps to curb piracy for both our films and other films. If there is any substantiating evidence against us, we are willing to clarify it in any forum,” an official statement from Lyca Productions said.
