After popular whistle-blower portal, Savukku published a report citing Lyca Productions’ alleged involvement in movie piracy and how Vishal rescued them, the company, which is bankrolling biggest projects such as Rajinikanth’s 2.0, debunked the reports as baseless rumors.
“As an organization, Lyca Group has strongly advocated Anti Piracy norms and has taken extensive steps to curb piracy for both our films and other films. If there is any substantiating evidence against us, we are willing to clarify it in any forum. It is disappointing that a verified online site like savukkuonline.com can carry such a defamatory article without clarifying it with us. That goes completely against Journalistic integrity. It is further disappointing when other media houses carry this without checking with us or clarifying the same. We have decided to take stringent action against the media houses and personalities who have spoken baselessly against Lyca Group. We at Lyca Productions believe in strong content creation and have always supported the film industry at every juncture. We request everyone not to believe baseless allegations and to clarify anything with us directly”, read an official statement from Lyca.
