Dhadak has become a victim of piracy within just a day of its release. The movie has been leaked online for users to watch it online or download it for free.
Starring Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, Dhadak is a tragic love story. While the film has been performing well at the box office, the producers will not be pleased to know that a pirated version of the full movie has been made available online.
Some Torrent sites have illegally uploaded pirated versions of Dhadak; while some of the pirated prints are of poor quality, some websites claim to have acquired HD print copies.
At a time when Dhadak has made an excellent start at the box office and is being appreciated by the audience, the fact that the full movie has been leaked online may affect its profits. Dhadak has had a good beginning at the box office, with its collection reaching close to Rs 50 crore mark in just 6 days time.
Piracy has been a major issue for Bollywood, and the menace has grown bigger in the recent past. Despite the government and the industry trying hard to curb the crime, piracy has been hitting almost all the movies.
While most of the times a film gets leaked online a day after its release, in some rare cases, it is released on the internet even before the official release. The second scenario causes massive losses for the producers.
Films like Manjhi: The Mountain Man, Great Grand Masti and others were leaked online before the theatrical release.
Directed by Shashank Khaitan, Dhadak is a remake of the Marathi blockbuster, Sairat.
