The piracy bug continues to bite the Tamil film industry despite stringent measures taken by the Anti Piracy Squad. And the latest victim of this bug is Thalapathy Vijay’s Sarkar. The full movie got leaked online on the site Tamil Rockers right on first day of release. The film gets leaked after popular notorious pirate site Tamil Rockers threatened to leak the full movie online within hours of release. And as said, the pirate site uploads the full movie on their site and the links of the film have gone viral online on social media. The makers of Sarkar and the Anti Piracy Squad are working on pulling down these copies from the pirate portal and have been mostly successful. However, industry experts believe that the damage has already been done.
Earlier, films like Kadaikutty Singam, Sandakozhi 2 and many other top releases of this year fell prey to these notorious pirate sites after full movie copies got uploaded on their site. Actor Vishal, who is also the President of Tamil Film Producers Council, has been working hard to eradicate piracy from the industry and has been mostly successful. Vishal, with the help of Chennai police, was able to get one person arrested last year who was one of the admins of Tamil Rockers. However, that did not stop the leaks of the movie happening. Besides Tamil, many top Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada films too get leaked online right on the first day of release.
