Attack against torrent sites for Swara Bhaskar's next Anaarkali of Aarah!

Actress Swara Bhaskar's Anaarkali of Aarah has grabbed eyeballs because of its content and bold scenes. It has been in news ever since the trailer has hit the web. The movie hit the headlines for a few bold scenes which got leaked and went viral. CBFC asked the filmmakers to chop off those scenes, but those cuts from the movie went viral. 
Post this facade of leaked scenes on the web, producer Sandiip Kapur has obtained an anti-piracy John Doe order from Madras High Court to prevent the film being available on the torrent sites and not affecting the business of the movie further.
He clarified it to a famous daily, “It means an action against over 1800 torrent and other websites covering more than 95 percent of the piracy spectrum. For an independent producer like me, every penny matters. For a Friday release, the pirated version is available online within a few hours. With this order, 1750 sites and 40 ISPs (internet service providers) will be restrained from downloading the film.”
He also further added, "Even if the scenes are deleted from the movie, none should get exclusive footage of our film. Web sites, which aren't covered by our order, have also been taken into account. Taking a cue from Dangal and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, both of which leaked on Facebook and YouTube on the day of release, adequate measures will be taken to ensure that doesn't happen to us, a team of software engineers has been deputed to ensure the sites are blocked immediately.”
Film Anaarkali of Aarah revolves around an erotic singer (Swara) from Arrah in Bihar, who sings double meaning songs. One day things take an ugly turn when Anaarkali has a confrontation with a very powerful man who molested her and instead of bowing down she chooses to fight back against the misogynistic beliefs of her society.
The movie also gathered attention when it faced trouble with the people of Veer Kunwar Singh University situated in Bihar as the trailer has an item number which they think is maligning the image of freedom fighter Kunwar Singh.
Hope, this step by the producer makes the path to the film's release a little easier.
