2.0: Piracy website TamilRockers leaks HD print of Rajinikanth's film hours after release
TamilRockers, the site that leaked 2.0, had also recently leaked Vada Chennai, featuring Dhanush
2.0 featuring superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar was one of the most anticipated films this weekend. The HD print of the film was leaked by a piracy website called TamilRockers within a few hours of its release on Thursday, reports India Today.
This happened despite the makers' efforts to have a separate team to scrutinise any chances of online piracy. The report adds that the producers of 2.0 had sought guidance of the Madras High Court about a research list of websites that had uploaded the pirated version illegally. However, official confirmation on this is awaited.
The anti-piracy team, which was being headed by actor Vishal, had presented a list of websites which were infamous for leaking newly released films online. The authorities even managed to block most sites, as per the report, but could not hinder TamilRockers from going ahead with the leak.
Made with an astronomical budget of Rs 550 crore, 2.0 may well stand to lose business with such a leak. The narrative of the film revolves around the ill effects of cell phone towers owing to the radiations that they generate.
