Box Office collections of the film likely to be affected as full HD print can be downloaded free
The Hush Post: Irrfan Khan’s latest movie Blackmail has got leaked online and its full HD print can be downloaded free. The film trade pundits fear that it may affect the box office collection of the new movie.
A full HD print of the Hindi movie Blackmail has been leaked online by some pirated sites for users to watch it on internet or download for free, International Business Times reported on Sunday.
Within just a couple of days of its release, Blackmail film has already become a victim of piracy. Pirated prints of the full movie have been made available online with even HD quality, the report said.
It is reported that some of the illegal sites are providing options of watching the full movie online, and some others sites are giving free download option also. The Irrfan Khan starrer has got positive reviews from the film critics, but the movie had a slow start at the box office with just Rs 2.81 crore on Friday.
But the movie recorded a good growth in its business on its second day, earning Rs 3.85 crore at the domestic market. The dark comedy enjoyed a growth of 37 per cent on Saturday in the collection, report said.
Now, the news about the full movie getting leaked online is likely to affect its box office collection. Piracy has been a major problem for Bollywood, but the menace has apparently grown more in recent past. Almost all the Bollywood films get leaked online just a few days after the release. In some rare cases, films are hit by piracy even before the official release.
Blackmail has a storyline about a husband, who finds his wife having an affair with another man. He decides to blackmail his wife and the other man, without revealing his identity. It has been directed by Abhinay Deo.
