Much-hyped film Thappad starring Taapsee Pannu has hit the theatres today and the film has received good reviews from the audience and the critics. However, the film has now been leaked on the piracy site Tamilrockers and it has left the makers worried. The film is available for free HD downloading on the torrent sites. Thappad shows the courage of a woman who has dedicated her entire life for the well-being of her husband and the family but the man doesn’t think twice before hitting her ‘for the first time’ at a house party. She seeks legal help to make sure that everyone understands how it’s not about ‘one slap’, it’s about ‘the slap’ and the man who has no right to hit a woman – not once, not twice, never ever!

The first-day collection of the film is predicted to be Rs 6 crore in all India box offices. The first-day overseas collection is estimated at Rs 2.5 crores in all languages.
Last year, Producers Guild of India came up with a press release to curb piracy. As per the press note, anybody who is involved in piracy has to face three years of a jail term or a fine of Rs 10 lakh or both. The note reads, “Cabinet approves an amendment to Cinematograph Act, 1952. If anyone involved in this has to face 3 years jail term or fine of ₹ 10 lakh or both.”
This should be noted that watching a pirated version of the film leaked online only encourages such a website incurring a loss to the entire team of the film. It is an illegal offence to even download the film and watch the pirated version.
