NEW DELHI, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- A man watching a pirated copy of a popular Bollywood film on an airplane was busted and shamed by a fellow passenger who also happened to be the film's star.

Kriti Sanon, star of recently-released hit Bollywood film Diwale, said in a Twitter post she was on an airplane when she realized a man sitting next to her was watching a pirated version of the film on a handheld projector.

"Someone watchin pirated version of Dilwale in front of me on phone in the flight! Annoyed!!" Sanon tweeted.

"Sad to [see] the hard work of so many [people being] watched in such pathetic quality! [Please] enjoy films in cinemas," she wrote in a second tweet.

Both tweets bore the hashtag "#SayNoToPiracy."

The man did not seem intimidated by the film star.

Sanon tweeted she "told him politely [that] he would enjoy the film more in a theatre, but he was busy showin off his projector!"
