Tamil film Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven has been leaked by notorious site Tamil Rockers. The film, featuring actor Simbu aka STR in the lead was released recently to positive reviews. Directed by Sundar C, it has now been leaked by the infamous piracy website.
Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven is a Tamil remake of successful Telugu film Attarintiki Daredi. Apart from Simbu, it also features Catherine Tresa and Megha Akash in the lead. Released on February 1, the film is now available for free download on Tamil Rockers.
Earlier, popular films, Ajith’s Viswasam and Rajinikanth’s Petta also got leaked on the website. VRV has been produced by Lyca Productions, the same house that helmed 2.0. The film was expected to register an impressive collection at the Box Office. However, now with it falling prey to the leak, the collections are surely expected to witness some dip.
Yesterday, while announcing Union budget, interim Finance Minister Piyush Goyal mentioned the provision of the anti-camcorder to be included in the Cinematograph Act to control piracy in the country. He announced, “A single window clearance for filmmaking to be made available to filmmakers, anti-camcording provision to also to be introduced to Cinematography Act to fight piracy.”
The amendment is expected to bring great relief for filmmakers who are fighting piracy night and day. Appreciating the move, Siddharth Roy Kapur, President, Producers Guild of India, said, “The amendments in the Anti Camcording provisions will support the industry’s growth by curtailing illegal recordings of films in cinema halls and will go a long way towards reducing piracy.”
Last year, in the budget 2018, the government had announced that an amount of Rs 118 crore was being set aside for the cybersecurity projects. However, nothing could really make an impact as most major films kept leaking online. The industry wishes to benefit big from the currently proposed provision.
