Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari has become the latest victim of online piracy. The film has been leaked online by the piracy website Tamilrockers. The much-anticipated film was leaked just a day after its release.
This isn’t the first time that a movie has been leaked online by Tamilrockers. Earlier, films like Gully Boy, 2.0, Petta, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Aquaman, The Fantastic Beasts, Manikarnika, Accidental Prime Minister and more also became the victim of piracy. This piracy website has been banned innumerable times. But, every time a new movie is leaked online, they come out with a different proxy server.
Meanwhile, Kesari has been receiving rave reviews from all quarters. It has broken Gully Boy's record to become the biggest opener of 2019. The Karan Johar produced war epic is the first film of 2019 to go past Rs 20 crore mark on its day one itself.
Kesari is based on the battle of Saragarhi fought between the British Indian army’s Sikh Regiment and Afghan tribesmen in September 1897. A total of 21 Sikh soldiers, who were part of the British Indian Army, were attacked by 10,000 Afghan tribal warriors. These 21 soldiers fought like lions to protect their country from the enemy.
Kesari also stars Parineeti Chopra, Siddhant Sharma, Ashwath Bhatt, Pawan Malhotra and Rana Ranbir. The film is slated to release on Holi on March 21, 2019.
