Maharshi was released amid much fanfare today, with fans eagerly waiting for Mahesh Babu’s 25th film.
Mahesh Babu starrer Maharshi, which hit the theatres today, has become the latest victim of the piracy website TamilRockers. Soon after film released, it was available for illegal download on the website.
Recently, TamilRockers angered Avengers:Endgame fans by leaking the film a few days before its release. As per reports, the online leaked pirated video was a bad print of the original movie. While this leak did not affect the box office performance of the Marvel film, the same cannot be said for the Mahesh Babu film, reported Indian Express.
Maharshi was released amid much fanfare today, with fans eagerly waiting for the Telugu star’s 25th film. Directed by Vamsi Paidipally, the film is jointly produced by Dil Raju, Ashwini Dutt and Prasad V Potluri. Mahesh Babu will be seen in three particular shades in Maharshi – a student, businessman and a farmer.
If there is a hype around the film, be sure that TamilRockers will find a way to leak it.
