Whoaa that was quick!
Vijay’s ‘Bigil’ has been one of the most anticipated film of this year. Even while the fans are enjoying the film on the big screens, the film is now available for download online. ‘Bigil’ has become the latest victim of online piracy. Tamilrockers, an online illegal film streaming site has leaked the film online within a few hours of its release.
Bigil is said to be a sports drama with a high-octane action flavour added to it as actor Vijay is playing the role of a football coach in the film. This is the third time the Atlee is joining hands with Thalapathy Vijay. The film also has Nayanthara playing the female lead and a strong supporting cast which includes Pariyerum Perumal fame Kathir, senior and versatile actor Jackie Shoff who is said to play the antagonist, Yogi Babu and senior Comedian Vivek who is sharing screen space with Vijay after a long time.
Earlier films like Petta, Viswasam and 2.0 were leaked online by the notorious piracy website. Tamilrockers continues to work through proxy servers and keeps changing its domain even after a direct order against them by the Madras High Court.
This is how filmmakers and producers worldwide suffer from losses. People won’t pay for the film but will watch it and download it off the net.
