Now, download 3 Idiots legally!
This can be termed as a major step to curb piracy. The much-awaited Aamir starrer has become the first-ever film that can be downloaded and watched on YouTube after 12 weeks of its release.
"This is the first film ever that you can actually download and watch on YouTube after 12 weeks from now," said Chopra.
He said that he planned to release the film on YouTube for those who can't afford multiplexes.
"I'm providing this facility for those who can't see it on big screen and watch pirated movies. I just want them to discourage pirated prints. They just need to wait for 12 weeks and after that they can legally download the movie and watch it," said Chopra.
"Tomorrow if there is a facility to watch movies on mobile phones, the film will be available there but in appropriate time. We can't harm our theatrical business by releasing at DTH," he added.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film stars Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Sharman Joshi and Madhavan.
3 Idiots is one of the most anticipated movies of the year set to hit theatres on Christmas, multiplex owners have decided to hike ticket prices for the movie by as much as 35 per cent. In short, a movie outing for four, which would otherwise cost Rs 600-800, would rob you by nearly Rs 2,000!
Will allowing free download after 12 weeks mar producer's profits?
