Taapsee Pannu and Rishi Kapoor starrer Mulk and Anil Kapoor starrer Fanney Khan leaked on Tamil Rockers and other torrent sites. This is not the first time that a film, soon after its release, has been leaked online. Previously, Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone and Netflix’ original web series, Sacred Games, were also out on the piracy site. In fact, there have been many incidents when a film was leaked online just a day before its theatrical release, affecting its business at the Box Office.
Tamilrockers is known for leaking pirated versions of Indian films on its site. It has been in trouble before for having Rajnikanth’s Kaala on its site and now, with Mulk and Fanney Khan joining the leaked films clan, it is a significant loss for the makers at the Box Office.
It has been advised again and again to not download the leaked and pirated version of the film. It is illegal to leak films on the torrent sites and also to download the films in its pirated version.
Mulk is a film that touches on an extremely sensitive topic, Islamophobia, that is currently being used as a fear mongering tactic by various fringe groups in the country. The film, directed by Anubhav Sinha, features Taapsee and Rishi Kapoor in lead roles, along with Ashutosh Rana, Prateik Babbar, and Manoj Pahwa among others. Taapsee plays the character of a lawyer in the film and has mouthed some hard-hitting dialogues that question society’s blame game against one community. While we see very little of it in the trailer, we hear that she has some brilliant monologues that are goosebump-inducing.

Fanney Khan, directed by Atul Manjrekar, has Anil Kapoor playing the titular character. It is a satirical comedy and addresses the issue of body shaming. The film is a remake of Oscar nominee film, Everybody’s Famous. In Fanney Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is seen playing a popular singer, Baby Singh, whereas Rajkummar Rao essays the role of Anil’s friend, Adhir.

Both the films serve good content to the audience. Therefore, leaking such films on the internet only hits the audience’s experience of watching a performance-oriented cinema on a big screen.
