It’s unbelievable and yet it has happened! Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Saaho’ got leaked online by popular hacking website Tamilrockers within a few hours of its theatrical release today on August 30.
Made on a mammoth budget with technical staff and crew specially called in to make its action sequences stand out, the film was hit in the first few hours of the theatrical release. The film has been made available on Torrent websites for pirated downloads but this is not the first time that a film has been attacked by the hackers.
Before this, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao’s ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’ was also leaked on the site with a HD print. Also, the HD print of Akshay Kumar's film ‘2.0’, featuring Rajnikanth, was also leaked within a few hours of its release.
The piracy site Tamilrockers currently stand banned by the government but they continue to pose a major threat to the film industry. Popular South Indian films like ‘Petta’, ‘Viswasam’, and ‘Vanathaan Rajavathaan Varuven’ were leaked within a day of their release. They also attacked ‘Gully Boy’ and ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.
Meanwhile, ‘Saaho’ stars Shraddha Kapoor opposite Prabhas. The star cast also includes Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Mandira Bedi.
