In a major setback for the makers of Soorma, the full movie has been leaked online by torrent sites for its users to watch the film on internet or download for free.
Sports biopic Soorma was released on July 13, and received positive response from the critics. The film made a decent start at the box office with its collection reaching close to Rs 15 crore by the end of its opening weekend.
However, just a day after its release, Soorma full movie has been made available on multiple illegal sites. While some of the pirated versions of the movie are in poor quality, some sites have even uploaded HD version of Soorma.
The torrent sites have uploaded the full version of the movie Soorma with options for its users either to watch it online or download it for free.
While the makers of the film will be delighted with the kind of response that the movie got, this news will certainly make them worry about the box office business of Soorma. With strong word of mouth Soorma managed to earn decent moolah over its first week, but illegal downloads might have hampered its business adversely.
Piracy has lately become a huge menace for Bollywood. Despite the government and the industry taking various measures to curb piracy, it has been on a rise since the recent past. Almost every Bollywood film gets leaked online right after its official release.
In some rare cases, the movies become victim of piracy even before the official release, which leads to massive loss for the producers. Some of the films that got leaked before official release in recent past are Great Grand Masti, Manjhi: The Moutain Man, etc.
Directed by Shaad Ali, Soorma is a biopic on the life of Hockey legend Sandeep Singh. The film features Diljit Dosanjh, Taapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi among others.
