Housefull 4 is the fourth instalment of the super-hit Housefull franchise. The movie stars Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda, Chunky Pandey, Pooja Hegde, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rana Daggubati, and many more. This multiple starrer had to face issues related to piracy when movie was leaked to one of the most famous pirated movie websites, Tamilrockers.
Tamilrockers allows people to download the pirated leaked version of the movie. Such websites target the people who are unsure about whether to watch a movie on theatres or not. The website not only leaks movies but also leaks TV series.
Housefull 4 was released on 25th October and is expected to be the biggest festival release of this year. Along with Housefull 4, two other movies were in the competition with Housefull 4, Saand ki Aankh, starring Bhumi Pednekar – Taapsee Pannu and Made in China starring Rajkumar Rao, Boman Irani and Mouni Roy. Apart from this, one of the most awaited Telugu films called Bigil starring Vijay was also released the same day.
The movie’s plot revolves around reincarnation in this instalment and the light hearted drama is expected to do wonders in the box office. Since one of the favourite Bollywood stars, Akshay Kumar is lead in the movie, the movie was expected to outrun the other two movies released on the same day. Although it is yet to be seen what the consequences would be since the movie has leaked.
Even though the movie is leaked, we can still expect viewers and audience in the theatres as it is the festive season and people would like to go on a family movie date together considering this is a light hearted comedy, which is fit for all ages to watch.
Apart from Housefull 4, many other movies are facing downfall in box office because of the leaking of their pirated versions. Even the Telugu movie Bigil was leaked few hours before its release which made it tough for the filmmakers to expect a great response from the audience.
