Pirating has become a raging concern for filmmakers as it tends to affect the box office collection of movies at least to some extent. And the film Samrat Prithviraj is the most recent victim of this incident because the film has already been leaked on some popular sites. The film, which stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role, was even made available on YouTube, within minutes after the end of the first day, of the first show.
For the uninitiated, Akki’s picture was released in theatres on June 3, 2022, to mainly positive reviews. Apart from Kumar, the film is directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi and features Manushi Chhillar, Sonu Sood, and Manav Vij in significant parts. The story of King Prithviraj Chauhan, who is known for his bravery and the legendary battle he had with Muhammad of Ghor, is told in this film.
In the recent event, Akshay Kumar’s acting Samrat Prithviraj fell victim to the plagiarism of the popular torrent website which is being misused across the country. Reportedly Tamilrockers first leaked the film on the internet, which was followed by Filmwap and Movierulz.
Leaking movies on the messaging app Telegram has become increasingly popular in recent months, and Samrat Prithviraj was no exception. Aside from that, the clip apparently appeared for a few minutes on the global video streaming network YouTube before being taken down.
Despite the fact that India has anti-piracy legislation, practically every major film is a victim of these pirate sites. They leak movies minutes after they are released, which is one of the reasons why certain directors (for example, KGF Chapter 2) put up special notes asking fans not to support such illicit sites. However, thus far, the movie hasn’t really helped.
