In the age of social media and integrated piracy, it is most likely for the films to get leaked on the internet first much before its release in the theaters.
Besides Hollywood movies, here is the list of some of the most controversial leak out cases of Bollywood films, presented in today’s article.
1. Udta Punjab
An uncensored version of the film which apparently had a censor watermark on the print leaked itself online 4 days before its release.
Reports consider the leak of Udta Punjab still as one of the biggest leaking episode in terms of people involved with the project.
Sultan produced by Yaashraj Production starring Salman Khan, was also leaked online before its release.
Although the film was successful in holding up the leaking issue.
3. Raaz Reboot
The fourth in the franchise of Raaz, Raaz Reboot, a horror drama starring Emraan Hashmi got leaked 3 days before its release date in 2016.
It was very fortunate that the most anticipated film of Big B, Paa getting leaked a night before its release didn’t affect its box office much.
5. Mohalla Assi
Mohalla Assi is a yet to release project starring Sunny Deol and Sakshi Tanwar.
The film eventually leaked on the internet and a number of people already viewed it.
6. Great Grand Masti
A full high quality uncensored version of the film was leaked online which was earlier scheduled to hit the theaters on July 22.
The film was available online on torrents and people transferred it across the country even though CDs and pen drives.
7. Manjhi- The Mountain Man
One of the most appreciated Ketan Mehta’s movie starring Nawazuddin Siddique, was unfortunate enough to have leaked online almost a week before its release.
The leak heavily affected the box office aspects of the film.
8. Bajrangi Bhaijaan
A censor copy of the film Bajrangi Bhaijaan, starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan came out surprisingly instead of a pirated copy, much before its release.
9. Baahubali 2
Reports say a graphic designer leaked a six minutes long war sequence from the movie on the internet much before its release.
After director SS Rajamouli filed a complaint, the Cyber Crime Department of the Crime Control Centre, Hyderabad, arrested the person for stealing footage from the in-process of Baahubali 2.
