Rani Mukerji-starrer cop drama movie Mardaani 2 has become the latest victim of the seemingly unending practice of video piracy. The film was leaked online on Friday, just hours after its official theatrical release.
Reportedly, the movie is now available for streaming and download in HD quality on various illegal platforms like Tamilrockers, Filmywap, and 123movies.
Free internet access may bring down 'Mardaani's business
Although the cat-and-mouse action thriller has garnered mostly positive reviews from critics and registered a decent box office opening, its easy and free-of-cost availability on several websites may hinder its long-term box office prospects.
Additionally, according to a report by The Indian Express, Hollywood fantasy-adventure flick Jumanji: The Next Level that also released Friday, too, has been leaked online by notorious piracy giant Tamilrockers.
Many major movies were illegally leaked online, this year
The practice of online film piracy has become unstoppable lately. In the recent past, many major movies such as Saaho, Kabir Singh, Bharat, Kalank, Gully Boy, Student of the Year 2, The Lion King, and Avengers: Endgame, fell prey to piracy.
