Actor-producer Aamir Khan appealed fans through Twitter to watch the movie in theatres, saying piracy is an issue which the film industry has been fighting for a long time.

In Mumbai, filmmaker Karan Johar made a similar appeal. As the film was set to hit the theatres Friday, the online leak of the film prompted film producer Anurag Kashyap to say that he believed it was a case of vested interests “trying to demoralise” the filmmakers in their fight.
