Karthi met the Chennai city Police Commissioner along with Aayirathil Oruvan’s producer Raveendran to discuss the piracy issue. Speaking to the media soon after the meeting, Karthi said that he thanked the Commissioner for taking steps to curb piracy. The actor appealed to all the movie buffs to see the film in theatres. He said that the producer had made the film on a huge budget and all those who were associated with AO toiled for nearly three years to bring it to screen.
Karthi added that police have played a pivotal role in ensuring that the film does not reach the pubic through pirated CDs and urged the people to cooperate.
