Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai released on the occasion of Eid amid the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. The makers decided to stream the film on ZEE5’s pay-per-view service ZEEPlex. A day before the release Salman took to his social media handle and warn those who are pirating the movie. Observing that people have not stopped pirating the film Zee Entertainment Enterprise has officially filed a complaint at the Cyber Cell.
According to the official statement, “Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. (ZEE) has filed an official complaint at the Cyber Cell, pertaining to the pirated version of the film ‘Radhe’ being circulated across messaging platforms, including WhatsApp and Telegram. The officials are actively tracking down the phone numbers involved in this act of piracy, taking the required legal actions.”
It further said, “ZEE has also appealed to the public at large, seeking their support in bringing an end to piracy, not just for the film ‘Radhe’, but for any kind of content. Films create livelihood, employment, and a source of income for millions of people working for the industry. Piracy being the biggest threat to the entertainment industry, curbs down this source of livelihood. Films also contribute to the economy with the taxes paid to the Government. People engaged in spreading the illegal version of the film, are not just embracing piracy, but are also negatively impacting the growth of the industry and the livelihoods of the people working for it round the clock.”
“The appeal is being made to all the responsible citizens, asking them to say no to piracy and to consume entertainment or information content only through official platforms,” it concluded.
Radhe also stars Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, and Jackie Shroff alongside Salman. The film is presented by Salman Khan films in association with ZEE Studios, produced By Salma Khan, Sohail Khan and Reel Life Production Pvt. limited.
