"Dilwale" and "Bajirao Mastani" were released on 18 December and just a day later, online versions of both the movies have been made available.
Piracy has always been a big problem in Bollywood and it looks like, Shah Rukh Khan's "Dilwale" and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Bajirao Mastani" are the latest victims of the menace.
Shah Rukh-Kajol starrer "Dilwale" has witnessed a brilliant opening at the box office. "Bajirao Mastani", starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, also received a good first day collection.
However, leaked online versions of the two movies are likely to affect their business. Although the quality of the pirated copy is not as good as the original print, people fond of watching movies online, will find the leaked online versions decent enough.
Earlier, Nawazuddin Siddiqui's "Manjhi - The Mountain Man" was leaked online even before its release. The full online versions of "Dilwale" and "Bajirao Mastani" can either be downloaded or watched online.
Piracy is any filmmaker's biggest fear as a lot of effort and money is spent on a movie. And when it comes to movies like "Dilwale" and "Bajirao Mastani", the stakes are too high.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh and Kajol's "Dilwale", which also features Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, has reportedly made a box office collection of Rs 21 crore on its first day.
On the other side, "Bajirao Mastani" reportedly opened to a business of Rs 12.80 crore on Friday.
