While movie buffs and Vijay fans are currently enjoying Ilayathalapathy's special birthday treat, they were in for a rude shock when a miscreant had leaked the teaser yesterday noon while it was planned to be launched at midnight.
Spoiling the thrill of a 12 AM release, an intern working at the Four Frames Studio had allegedly captured the teaser on his mobile phone before leaking it online.
Based on the complaint lodged by the Manager of Four Frames, Mr. Kalyana Sundaram, police have arrested a person named MS Mithun, responsible for the leak.
A footage retrieved from a CCTV camera installed at the studio has been served as the evidence and the court's decision regarding the same is expected soon.
One of the producers of Puli, PT Selvakumar, has shared his thoughts on the erroneous act. He has said, "Vijay and Chimbu Deven have put in a lot of efforts to make the teaser look as stunning as it is. Being a big budget movie, it is inappropriate for some unknown person to leak the video. This act has instilled great fear among us".
