Alas! New OTT Release Falls Prey To Piracy

Piracy - we expected it to die down as theatres were shut for nearly three months, but it has taken a new form to survive. Giving a major blow to the filmmakers who are already doomed in losses, the most popular piracy streaming platform Tamilrockers has now targetted OTT releases. Within hours of the release of much-awaited Bollywood comedy-drama Gulabo Sitabo starring Ayushmann Khurana and Amitabh Bachchan, it has become a prey for piracy. The whole movie is available for download in HD quality on several notorious pirated sites giving a shocker to the makers. While opting for OTT release itself is a loss of revenue for the makers, pirated sites are now turning a spoilsport for that revenue as well.
