Salman Khan's latest film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai released on ZEE5 on May 13. Ever since the film's been setting records - some remarkable and some forgettable. On Friday, Salman Khan took to Instagram to thank his fans as the film had garnered 4.2 million views on its first day of release itself.
However, Salman had to take to his social media yesterday again, but not for a celebratory reason. He wrote, "We offered you to watch our film Radhe at a reasonable price of INR 249 Per View. In spite of that, pirated sites are streaming Radhe illegally which is a serious crime. Cyber Cell is taking action against all these illegal pirated sites. Please don’t participate in piracy or the Cyber Cell will take action against you as well. Please understand you will get into a lot of trouble with the Cyber cell.”May 15, 2021
The post quickly went viral on social media platforms and people were quick to troll Salman. Here's how they reacted

Thank you bhaijaan for giving us solid Headache
Earlier, speaking about the hybrid model that the filmmakers had experimented with for the Radhe's release, Randeep Hooda had said, “It will be a good experiment for the industry to have this hybrid kind of platform release where people who are unable to get to theatres can watch it. It is also a cheaper option since instead of buying one ticket per person, the entire family can watch it. What better film to test the whole system with than a Salman Khan film. I’m hoping it will do well.”
Salman had earlier apologised to theatre owners for not being able to release the film on the big screen. He had also asked fans to watch the film legally. In a recorded message, he'd said, "It takes the hard work of several people to make one film and it hurts a lot when some take the route of piracy to watch the final product. I want a commitment from all of you that you will enjoy films on the right platform. So this Eid we want a commitment from the audience- no piracy in entertainment."View this post on Instagram
