Notorious piracy site Tamilrockers on Thursday released the pirated version of Rajinikanth starrer Kaala at 5:28 am, reportedly even as the first shows of the film were screened across Tamil Nadu.

Screenshots doing the round on social media suggest that the website even put out a HD version of the film.

This comes despite the Tamil film industry's strong stance against piracy, which has seemingly not made a huge difference.

Many took to Twitter to complain about the piracy and also tweeted to actor and Tamil Film Producers Council (Nadigar Sangam) President Vishal, demanding that swift action be taken.

A member of the Nadigar Sangam told TNM that their team was trying to get the link blocked.

This came hours after Vishal announced that a man was arrested from Cathay in Singapore, after he streamed the movie from the cinema threatre via Facebook live.

Tamilrockers is one of the biggest piracy sites that routinely releases south Indian movies online.

Soon after he got elected as head of Tamil Nadu Producers Council, Vishal issued a warning to the torrent site. 

Tamil Rockers has been a favorite online destination for lakhs to stream pirated South Indian movies. The admins of this site have remained anonymous. The torrent site has run into controversies many times by streaming movies live including big films like Baahubali, Premam and others.

The website joined the police's wanted list after it sold the censor copy of Malayalam blockbuster Premam online. 

Kaala is directed by Pa Ranjith and is a gangster story loosely based on Mumbai-don Karikalan. The film has an impressive star cast with veterans like Nana Patekar and Samuthirakani included. Huma Qureshi and Anjali Patil have been roped in to play the female leads in the movie.
