Rajinikanth’s Kabali has been leaked online three days before release, according to reports. The film which is seeing unprecedented buzz is allegedly available for download/streaming on various links on the dark web.
While the film has not landed on file sharing site Torrent, there are lot of fake links available given the high interest in the film.
The makers of Rajini’s Kabali had earlier approached Madras High Court to ensure that the film is not pirated. Kabali producer S Thanu had filed a petition to stop illegal download of the film by 180 named websites and countless unknown sites. However, the gangster drama landing on dark net can hit Kabali’s business.
While Indian Express could not independently verify the report, India Today reported a source as saying that the film’s makers are trying to pull down unauthorised links to the film.
This is not the first instance of a film leaking online in recent past. Salman Khan’s Sultan found its way to dark web a few hours before its release. The makers of Great Grand Masti were forced to bring forward the release of the film after it leaked online three weeks before release date. The controversy-ridden Udta Punjab starring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt also found its way online a day before it hit the theatres.
Kabali, starring Rajinikanth and Radhika Apte, will release in theatres all around India, on July 22.
