NEW DELHI (Web Desk) – Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon posted a series of angry tweets after a passenger sitting next to her on a flight brazenly started watching a pirated copy of her recent film.
Sanon was travelling to New Delhi last week when the man seated beside her started using an iPhone projector to watch Hindi blockbuster “Dilwale”, according to Indian media.
The $15 million movie, which sees Sanon star alongside Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan, had only been released in cinemas 10 days ago.
“Someone watching pirated version of Dilwale in front of me on phone in the flight! Annoyed!! #SayNoToPiracy,” the 25-year-old actress posted on her official Twitter account.
The tweet, which has been liked almost 3,000 times, was accompanied by a photo showing the passenger watching the movie. It also included an angry emoji face.
Shortly afterwards she tweeted again, regretting “to see the hard work of so many people being watched in such pathetic quality.”
“Pls enjoy films in cinemas,” Sanon wrote.
A third tweet followed the previous posts, in response to a user who said that watching pirated movies was a criminal offence.
“Yup told him politely that he would enjoy the film more in a theatre, but he was busy showing off his projector.”
