After "Great Grand Masti" and most recently "Kabali" being reportedly leaked online, the makers of "Madaari" (Madari) are taking strict measures to avoid the movie from being leaked on the internet at least before its release.

"Great Grand Masti" full movie was leaked online two weeks before its release and that had apparently caused losses to the makers of the film. The adult comedy could not do well at the box office and it is believed that the online leak was responsible for that as the film was available for free download and viewing.

Recently, reports have been doing the rounds that Rajinikanth-starrer action movie "Kabali" also got leaked and is available on around 180 websites. The makers of "Kabali" had taken very stern measures to avoid the film from being leaked.

In such a scenario, director Nishikant Kamat told International Business Times, India, that his team has been making sure that "Madaari" does not get leaked online. Expressing anxiety over such incidents, the director said that movies getting leaked before release is "unfortunate."

"We are trying our best and we are really aware. It is really sad and unfortunate that it happens to any film. So much of hard work goes into making a film and it being leaked online is very unfortunate. Piracy is something that obviously has to be curbed, but a film getting leaked two weeks before its release is too unfortunate. We are doing everything possible to avoid such incidents," Kamat said.

The movie "Madaari" features Irrfan Khan and Jimmy Shergill among others. Based on true events, the film is a social-thriller that apparently will highlight some of the flaws in the system. Both "Madaari" and "Kabali" are slated to be released on July 22.
