Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao have returned to the big screen with the dark comedy film “Judgementall Hai Kya”, after they were first paired together in the hit film “Queen.” The edgy flick has been the subject of several controversies, from the announcement of its title and subsequent first poster release, to recent scandals involving its lead actress Kangana and a potential media boycott of the film. Now the film has made headlines once again at it has become one of the recent victims of piracy, namely by the infamous torrent site Tamilrockers. “Judgementall Hai Kya”, which had its cinematic release this past Friday, was leaked on Tamilrockers only some hours after it hit theaters. The film is now available on the site in its entirety for free downloading and streaming.
This comes after multiple recent reports of other films facing issues of piracy by Tamilrockers. In the past few months alone, highly anticipated titles including “Gully Boy”, “Kabir Singh”, and “Super 30” have all been leaked on to the site. The high efficiency of the anonymous figures behind the movies being leaked has led to much media coverage, with many wondering how India’s production houses will be able to tackle this issue for future releases.
“Judgementall Hai Kya”, starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao and produced by Ekta Kapoor, has seen a lot of controversy since the beginning. The film had to even undergo a title change, as it was originally known as “Mental Hai Kya” (“Are You Mental?”) and faced backlash by mental health advocacy groups who felt that the title was offensive towards individuals who had mental health issues. The most recent scandal concerning the film has revolved around lead actress Kangana, who became the subject of media boycotts after she engaged in a public spat with a reporter during one of the promotional events for the film. The controversy has seen a lot of back and forth between the media fraternity, who have deemed Kangana’s action as disrespectful towards journalists, and Kangana, who has so far stuck by her words and has denounced the Indian media several times.
