It is breaking the spine of Malayalam cinema: Aashiq Abu

The recent ‘Leela’ piracy row has left the industry in distress. The film’s release itself was a hard task considering the tiff Ranjith had with producers’ association. When the movie finally hit the screens as well as online streaming site, the pirated copy of it surfaced immediately. Director Aashiq Abu opines that the act (piracy) is something which is breaking Malayalam cinema’s backbone. If there is someone who has even a tad of respect and love for the art form, then please don’t be part of the crime, requests Aashiq.
