Indian films have been lately becoming a frequent victim of piracy. There are several pirated websites that provide movies and songs for free download. Recently, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs of Hindostan got leaked just a few hours after its release. The film was leaked by pirated website Tamilrockers in three languages Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. Apart from that, a Tamil film titled Sarkar also got leaked recently by the same portal.
And now, Tamilrockers is threatening to leak the biggest film of the year- Robot 2.0 full movie starring Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar. A tweet was made from the twitter handle of Tamilrockers that read, “#2Point0 Coming Soon in Tamil Rockers.”
Their twitter handle was later suspended, but they tweeted again from a new handle. It read, “#2Point0 #2point0November #2Point0FromNov29 #Rajinikanth #Rajini #SuperStar #TR #TamilRockers. Our Old Account Suspended @TamilRockersMV.”

Robot 2.0 Full Movie in Hindi Download:
Robot 2.0 Full movie download 720p in Hindi is expected to be made available by the pirated website. However, it is an illegal activity. Assessing any such pirated website and downloading films is unsafe and may land you in jail. You may face an imprisonment for about 3 years as Ministry of Information Technology keeps a track on the IP address of every user that visits such website.
Since the movie is shot in Tamil, Tamilrockers will also provide Robot 2.0 Full Movie download option in Tamil apart from Hindi.
In an attempt to prevent the leakage of 2.0 online, the Madras High Court has directed 37 internet providers across the country to take preventive steps. It has directed them to prevent hosting of 2.0 through 12,564 possible URLs.
Justice M. Sundar directed BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited), MTNL (Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited), Bharti Airtel, Hathway Cable, and other internet service providers to block hosting of the upcoming film through any of the URLs listed in the suit preferred by Neelakantnarayanpur of Lyca Productions.
The judge said, “…the movie is getting released tomorrow and by 11.30 am we’ll get to know whether the plaintiff wins or Tamil Rockers succeeds in uploading the movie despite our efforts.”
The advocate explained the anxiety of the producer and said that a large sum of money is involved in producing the movie and piracy often hampers the collection and causes irreversible damage to filmmakers.
This isn’t the first time that a suit has been filed before the release of the film. However, the interim injunctions have failed to be effective as Tamil rockers always manage to leak the film online. They use different URLs or sometimes even other names to leak the films. However, this time Lyra Productions has worked on various permutations and combinations to prevent Tamilrockers from leaking the film.
This leakage of Bollywood films on online platforms doesn’t only leave the filmmakers in a sad situation, but also leave the movie buffs angry. After Sarkar and Thugs of Hindostan were leaked online by Tamilrockers the movie buffs wrote to the Tamil Film Producers Council to take a legal action against the website.
Robot 2.0 is the sequel of 2010 Tamil film ‘Enthiran’ or called as ‘Robot’ in Hindi industry. The film stars Rajnikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Amy Jackson and is scheduled for 29 November 2019 release.

Made with a budget of Rs 543 crore, it is touted to be as India’s most expensive film till date. Though the film is expected to break records on the box office, the online leakage of film poses a serious threat to any film’s collection.
