Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu is now voicing concerns about piracy that is plaguing the film industry.
The actress, who is gearing up for the release of her new Hindi film ‘Aakrosh’ about honour killing, urges people to stop buying pirated CDs and DVDs.
‘Lot of hard work goes into making films. Each film supports hundreds of people (Entire Crew and their families). Say no to piracy, watch films in theatres,’ she wrote on her Twitter page.
According to Ernst & Young 2008 report on The Effects of Counterfeiting and Piracy on India’s Entertainment Industry, the Indian film industry lost US $959 million and 571,896 jobs due to piracy.
