The film "Dilwale" was leaked online just after a day of its release on 18 December, and actress Kriti Sanon, who has acted in it, got a first-hand experience of how the pirated version of the film has spread all around. The actress was traveling in a flight recently when she saw a co-passenger watching Shah Rukh Khan-starrer "Dilwale" on his phone. It certainly irked Kriti.
The "Dilwale" actress took to Twitter and shared photos of how the co-passenger was watching the downloaded version of the full movie on his phone. Kriti also mentioned in her tweets that she asked the passenger to watch it in theatres for better quality, but he apparently did not pay much heed to her request.
Although "Dilwale", starring Shah Rukh, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti, managed a brilliant run at the box office, it is evident that the online leaked version of the film has affected its business.
However, "Dilwale" is not the only victim of piracy. "Bajirao Mastani" also became available online the very next day of its release. Both movies released on the same day, and were leaked online with free download options. Bollywood has been having a tough time fighting piracy, as Nawazuddin Siddqiui-starrer "Manjhi-The Mountain Man" was leaked online even before its release!
