A lot of attempts have been made to stop the menace of online piracy. However, websites like Tamilrockers operate with impunity. Earlier this year, members of the Film Federation of India (FFI) had also asked for the Cinematograph Act to be amended in February. The government, in its response, introduced a bill in Rajya Sabha to impose a strict penalty to combat piracy. The Indian Express writes the website keeps switching its domain extension to avoid being caught, and can only be accessed through a proxy server.

In the recent past, major big-budget films, including Dream Girl, KaappaanSaahoJudgementall Hai KyaKabir SinghBharat, India's Most WantedKalank, Gully BoyDe De Pyaar DeStudent of the Year 2Thugs of Hindostan, and Simmba were made available for illegally downloading and streaming.

Adithya Varma marks the acting debut of Chiyaan Vikram’s son Dhruv Vikram. Banita Sandhu (of October-fame), Anbu Thasan, and Priya Anand will also be seen in pivotal roles.

The project has been bankrolled by E4 Entertainment, the producers behind Malayalam films like Ezra and Godha.

The Tamil remake was originally titled Varmaa, and shot with director Bala. However, it was later scrapped after the makers were unhappy with the final output. In a statement, Bala had revealed it was his decision to leave the project, and denied allegations made by the producers. Aditya Varma is helmed by Gireesaaya.
