Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt's 'Gully Boy' leaked online by Tamilrockers

Is there a way to curb piracy? This question is bothering filmmakers these days as piracy is impacting the business of every new release.

And this time it is Ranveer Singh-starrer Gully Boy, which became the target of piracy.

According to media reports, the Zoya Akhtar directorial, which was released on February 14, has been leaked online by infamous piracy website Tamilrockers.

Piracy

'Gully Boy' isn't the only one, 'Manikarnika,' 'Uri' targeted too

Reportedly, Gully Boy was available on the website just a day after its release, and the entire movie was available for free download for users.

Sadly, this isn't the first time that this website has targeted a new release.

Earlier, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, Thackeray and Uri: The Surgical Strike were also leaked within hours of their theatrical release.

Ban

The piracy giant has been banned innumerable times

Notably, the Indian judiciary system has been taking strict actions to prevent piracy.

In fact, Madras High Court had put a ban on 12,000 sites in 2018 to stop piracy.

However, among the banned sites, Tamilrockers alone had access to 2,000 of them.

Although the piracy giant has been banned innumerable times, with every movie leak, they reportedly come with a different proxy server.
