The Mumbai Cyber Crime Police has received a detailed complaint from Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra after it was found that the entire film was leaked online on the day of its release. The Mumbai Police as well as five special teams from Fox Star (the distributors) are currently probing the complaint.
Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju, a biopic on Sanjay Dutt, has already made Rs. 120 crore at the box office and broke some records of major films. "While the five teams are trying to pull the film down from various sites, a few download links are still available. In a pre-emptive move, the makers had released the film in the UAE only on Friday, instead of Thursday as is the norm, hoping that it would reduce the chances of it getting leaked from the Middle East. Ideally, the team should have procured a John Doe order, given how rampant piracy has become in this country," source told Mid-Day.
The Mumbai Cyber-crime cell however is yet to make any headway in the case.
