Kabali piracy issue: Big loss to producer
The Kollywood film named Kabali starred by Super Star Rajinikanth had released all over the world today and getting only below average reviews from all corners. That was indeed a big blow to the team of the film. Now, adding to their woes, the high definition print of the movie has leaked online through the video hosting platform named Vimeo. The leaked print has 2 hour length and we can also see the watermark of TamilGun.Com in the screenshots taken from that leaked print of the movie.
As per reports, the leaked pirated print spread all around through social media platforms before it was removed from online by the authorities. This piracy issue will affect Kabali big time as well. Because reports says that already 2 million people had viewed that leaked print before it was removed. If we consider the normal ticket rate of 100 rupees, the producer had to suffer a loss of 20 crore rupees. The ticket rate is quite high in Tamil Nadu and some other stations and the loss is going to be very high when we consider that.

Last day, a threat had come from Tamil Rockers team that they will upload the pirated print of the movie online and spread it like wildfire. It was a direct threat to Kabali team through the Facebook page in the name of Tamil Rockers. There are reports that the makers of this film had moved legally and blocked that site after their threat. Kalaipuli S Thanu who bankrolled this movie approached the honorable Court even before the release of the movie and got a favorable judgement from court to block all internet sites which uploads and spreads pirated prints. The introduction scene of Rajinikanth from this movie had leaked last day and it is now spreading through WhatsApp all around.
This piracy issue is now killing cinema in India. Even big industries like Bollywood is suffering setback due to this piracy issue. We have to react against this issue and it’s time to say no to pirated prints and save the art called cinema.
