Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt’s has become the latest victim of online piracy. The film has been leaked online by the piracy website Tamilrockers. The period drama was leaked just a day after its release.
This isn’t the first time a movie has been leaked online by the Tamilrockers. Earlier, films like Gully Boy, 2.0, Petta, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Manikarnika, Accidental Prime Minister and more also became the victim of piracy. This piracy website has been banned innumerable times. But, every time a new movie is leaked online, they come out with a different proxy server.
In recent times, it has been paying special attention to Hollywood films and shows. It has not only leaked the antihero flick Hellboy and horror film Pet Sematary, but also proceeded to upload the first episode of HBO’s wildly popular series Game of Thrones Season 8. Last year, the members of Film Federation of India had also requested the government to tighten security measures and to regulate piracy inside movie halls.
Meanwhile, Kalank released on April 17. Directed by Abhishek Varman, the film opened to mixed reviews from both critics and audience. Apart from Varun and Alia, the film also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt. Interestingly, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt have collaborated on screen after a gap of almost 22 years.
