Passenger uses projector to watch pirated movie on plane – unaware he is sitting next to the star

A plane passenger who settled down to watch a pirated film got the shock of his life – when the actress who starred in the flick turned out to be seated beside him.

Kriti Sanon is an award-winning Bollywood actress who has been celebrating the colossal success of her second big screen outing Dilwale.

But when the 25-year-old star spotted an aeroplane passenger using a personal projector to show the film on the craft, she tweeted her annoyance.

“Someone watching pirate version of Dilwale in front of me on phone in the flight! Annoyed!!” she wrote, adding the hashtag ‘say no to piracy’.

The former model’s tweet was retweeted more than 1,200 times and liked more than 2,500 times.

Kriti, who is from New Dehli, later tweeted “Sad to see the hardwork of so many people being watched in such pathetic quality! Please enjoy films in cinemas.”

According to her Twitter feed, she did approach him about it, but to no avail: “Told him politely that he would enjoy the film more in a theatre but he was busy showing off his projector!” she said.

Commenter Mandvi Sharma pointed out: “It is a criminal offence,” while Tapan Mehtta revealed it’s quite common: “Lot of people watch it everyday in the train while going to work.”

But Tejan Shrivasta had a point to make: “Piracy is a crime agreed but even ticket sellers/producers should also think that not everyone can afford a 250-300rs [£2.50-£3] ticket.”
