Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa starrer Shadaa is the latest film to be leaked by the piracy site Tamilrockers, continuing their stream of pirating multiple flicks just a short while after they make their cinematic releases. The Punjabi film was released worldwide in June and quickly became the second highest grossing Punjabi language film of all time. Tamilrockers has rapidly become known for being a trusted source of finding leaked copyrighted content, mainly movies, soon after their release. Users of the site are able to stream and download files of the film free of charge via Tamilrockers’ method of using magnet links and torrent files.
Upon its release, Shadaa soon saw mass success with audiences and critics alike. Many praised the film for its humour and wit, as well as for the performances of its leads Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa. Shadaa followed the story of Diljit’s character Chadta, a bachelor that faces pressure from his parents to hurry up and find a suitable bride. Things take a turn when Chadta comes across Vanjhali, played by Neeru, a girl that is totally obsessed with marriage unlike Chadta. Hijinks ensue as Chadta must realize whether he should get married or remain a bachelor forever.
This is by no means the first time that Tamilrockers has hit headlines for its piracy work. Though there are many portals out there that regularly leak films online, Tamilrockers gained notoriety as it shifted its focus from just leaking Tollywood films to Bollywood and Hollywood ones as well. Some of its most noteworthy leaks in the past year include Kabir Singh, Dear Comrade, Avengers: Endgame and The Lion King, all of which are available on the site in high definition. It currently remains to be seen whether or not Tamilrockers will be facing some dire legal consequences or not. It has so far managed to avoid getting shut down by regularly changing its web address to prevent detection.
