Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, featuring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, leaked on piracy websites soon after its release on February 14 and has been made available for free download.
Mumbai: Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's film Gully Boy is getting amazing responses, reviews from audiences and movie critics. But, sadly the film has become the latest victim of piracy. The entire film was leaked online by Tamil Rockers hours after its release on Thursday.
Tamil Rockers is a website known for leaking new movies online. The Department of Telecommunication regularly blocks the website under the directive of the Government of Tamil Nadu but the administrators of the site keep moving to new domains.
According to film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film opened at Rs 18.70 crore. It is expected to show growth during the extended weekend. The movie revolves around the story of a slum dweller Murad (Ranveer) who aspires to become a rapper. Alia plays his hyperactive, hot-headed lover in the film who is a medical student. The film probes the Indian hip-hop culture and is inspired by the lives of rappers Divine and Naezy.
The movie premiered to a packed house at the ongoing Berlin International Film Festival. Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director, Toronto International Film Festival shared on Twitter that the film was well-received and he has never seen such a response for any movie at the event in the past two decades. The film also features Kalki, Vijay Raaj and Siddhant Chaturvedi in pivotal roles.
