High budget movies like Baahubali, Baahubali 2 and low budget films like Fidaa, Geeta Govindam are all treated the same in terms of piracy. No film is left out, once the movie is released in the theaters, within hours, a pirated version is available to watch for free on these online websites.
This particular movie Chanakya is produced by AK Entertainments which is not a very big production company. Usually, companies like Geeta Arts or Suresh productions can even handle the loss incurred due to piracy, its the question of production companies which cannot afford to lose in the name of piracy. Though there are laws that are enforced with respect to this, there is nothing the producers can do to protect the film due to poor implementation.
