After Udta Punjab was leaked online on Wednesday two days before its schedule release, Shahid Kapoor took to Twitter to warn his fans about the virus that could cause their systems to crash while downloading the film.
He wrote: "Blood and sweat of many in this film. It's been your battle as much as ours. Now is the time you can show it. Watch UdtaPunjab in theatres (sic)." He added, "Not illegally through piracy. Let's see how many of you do the right thing cause it's the right thing. For no personal gain (sic)." He further said, "And for those who have no conscience welcome to the #udtavirus most links will make your phone crash #piracydimaadi (sic)."
I wonder if the 'virus' theory is true.
