Karthi’s Thambi and Sivakarthikeyan’s Hero illegally leaked online

Shocking it may sound, Sivakarthikeyan’s Hero and Karthi’s Thambi, which hit the screens on Friday, have been illegally released online by piracy websites.

This has shocked the makers of the movies and it is said legal steps would be initiated. In the meantime, Sivakarthikeyan has expressed happiness over the positive reviews and response generated by Hero.

The actor, who is fresh from the success of Namma Veetu Pillai, said, “The response is super!! We are making films for them (audience and fans) and when they like it then there is nothing which makes me happy than that.”

“We have delivered a good message through the movie, everyone will definitely like it. This will be a film which people will be able to connect…. Students and parents will definitely be able to connect with the film…” he added.

On how Hero happened, Sivakarthikeyan said recently, “It was my cinematographer George who initiate and assembled this project. Before this film, he was just a friend but now, I have become a fan of his effortless working style.”

He added: “Years ago, I worked with Mithran, Ruben and George in a short film. At the ‘Seema Raja’ shooting spot, got to know the basic plot of ‘Hero’ and immediately gave my nod. Personally, I’m a big fan of Superhero films. Now, I am thrilled and excited to be a part of one such film. I should also thank Shankar sir for showing us the path to think different and big.”

He further said: “Not a even single day at college had passed without listening to Yuvan Shankar sir’s music. When he texted me saying ‘Hero’ was one of his best works, I was moved. There is also a eighteen minute long score of him in the film. Eagerly waiting to watch the scene and listen to the score.”
On the film’s heroine Kalyani Priyadarshan, Sivakarthikeyan said: “Good to see a Tamil speaking heroine here. Only thing is she should believe that her Tamil is good.”
