Sunny Deol's recently released film Bhaiyyaji Superhit (Bhaiaji Superhit) has become the latest victim of online piracy as illegal sites have opened gates to download the full movie or online streaming for free. Directed by Neeraj Pathak, the movie also stars an ensemble cast of Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Arshad Warsi, Evelyn Sharma and Shreyas Talpade.
The illegal sites have released Bhaiyyaji Superhit full movie download links with 1080p or 720p HD quality prints from unofficial servers. The movie has taken a flying start at the box office. The full movie download is likely to hit the film's box office collection to a large extent.
Some of the pirated copies seems to have been shot from a handy camera with average print quality while some have made HD quality prints available.
Bhaiyyaji Superhit has opened to mixed reviews from critics and audience alike. The movie has collected Rs 1.25 crore on the opening day because of Sunny Deol's fan base.
However, this is not the first time a Bollywood movie has been hit by piracy. Earlier, movies like Thugs Of Hindostan, Race 3, Sanju, Udta Punjab, Great Grand Masti and Manjhi - The Mountain Man have also been leaked online which affected their overall box office performance at the domestic market.
Bollywood industry has been trying hard to stop the piracy of films for the past several decades. Some filmmakers and producers with the help of cybersecurity forces have managed to block sites that allow online users to download the latest Bollywood movies that get released almost every week.
