Sanjay Dutt’s biopic “Sanju” released worldwide and the love of people make movie the highest grosser of the year 2018. Its 1st-day collection is estimated at 34.75CR. But, “ALL IS NOT WELL” as the movie has been leaked on Facebook.
Much like Sanjay’s real-life his biopic is also facing a serious problem; it got leaked within 24 hours of its release. It started to trend on twitter #sanjuleaked. The movie was first posted on Facebook by Prince Rizwan a resident of Saudi Arabia and then followed by Tushar Tamang, Khurshid Anwar and few others Indian Facebook users.
The post of Tushar and Khurshid was shared by more than 20 k other users. The number was big enough to affect the business of the movie, but due to love of Ranbir and Sanjay Dutt’s fans, nothing of that sort happened. No doubt the movie is entertaining and deserve the love it’s getting from people.
It is not a hidden fact that most of the latest movie get’s uploaded on different websites within 2 or 3 days of release, but uploading a movie by next day of its release on Facebook is unprecedented.
Bollywood today tried to reach Tushar and Khurshid, but they didn’t reply. Tushar and Khurshid both deleted the post just after Bollywood today make them realise they can get into trouble. Tushar used the laughing emojis on the post as it was some kind of joke to him. He didn’t understand that it takes a lot of money and efforts to make a movie.
Despite the leak, “Sanju” breaks many box-office records. It breaks the box office Opening day record with Rs 34.75 crore, highest 2nd day earn 38.60 Crore, highest single day collection record by earning 46.71 Crore and became the highest opening weekend grosser of the year by earning 120.06 Crore.
According to law, one can get sentenced to 3 years of jail if they watch pirated movie online. The law is strong, but its implementation is in question as we witness more than 21k people watched and share the movie without any fear.
The movie “Sanju” already Fateh (conquer) the box-office and the conquest is still going on. Now we need to see, will the producers take any legal actions against those who are responsible for the leak or not?
