Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Dream Girl amidst much hype has hit the theaters today and living up to its expectation earned great reviews on the very first day of its release from movie buffs.
Filmibeat reported, a few hours after the release of movie, it became the latest target of online piracy.
The trend of leaking full movies has been spreading its wings since a long time in the industry by piracy sites and many movies including the big-budget ones have suffered because of it!
Earlier movies like The Lion king, Avengers: the Endgame, Saaho became victim of movie piracy by notorious hackers Tamilrockers. Many movies including the big-budget ones have suffered because of it! Though some movies performed extremely well despite being leaked online, some failed to attract footfalls in the theatres and incurred losses.
Tamilrockers is a website which facilitates the distribution of copyrighted material, including television shows, movies, music and videos. Visitors can search for movies, web series and download copyrighted material with the help of magnet links and torrent files, which facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing.
In India, most internet service providers have been ordered to block access to the website. Even after flouting IP norms and geting blocks, the website continues operation by switching to a series of new web addresses.
Meanwhile, Raaj Shandilya directorial comedy-drama also starring Nushrat Bharucha has opened to a good start at the box office as per early estimates and can become the biggest opener for Ayushmann.
As per the latest report on Boxofficeindia.com, the film recorded morning occupancy of around 30% which is the best start for the smaller films this year.
