The much-awaited film of 2018 finally hit the screens this Friday. We are talking about Rohit Shetty directorial Simmba which stars Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles. The film is a spin-off of Hit Bollywood film Singham starring Ajay Devgn. However, just in a day of its release, Simmba became a victim of online piracy. The film has been leaked online by online pirated website Tamil Rockers.
Recently, many big films became a victim of Tamil Rockers. 2.0, Thugs of Hindostan, Sarkar, Zero, Badhaai Ho are just a few to name. Zero and KGF were released on Dec 21 and was leaked online hours after their release. Tamilrockers uploads a wide range of Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films on its website. If the site gets blocked, they upload films on different URLs and sometimes even use different names to do the same. Filmmakers have been fighting hard against Tamilrockers but have failed so far.
During the release of Rajnikanth and Akshay starrer 2.0, Lyra Productions worked on various permutations and combinations to prevent Tamilrockers from leaking the film. internet service providers were directed by Madras High Court to block hosting of the upcoming film through any of the URLs listed in the suit preferred by Neelakantnarayanpur of Lyca Productions. Despite several preventive steps, the film was leaked online.
Talking about Simmba, the film is getting mixed reviews from the audience. Movie critic Taran Adarsh reviewed the film as “
