It has been only a day since Sandakozhi 2 Chennai hit the theatres worldwide. Within a few hours of the release, active piracy website TamilRockers, Moviesda and Tamilgun leaked the full movie online.
According to source, the makers of Sandakozhi 2 are trying to take down the film from the site.
For several years, filmmakers have been trying to block these TamilRockers and websites of the ilk, in a step to save Tamil cinema from piracy.
Vishal, President of the Tamil Nadu Film Producers’ Council, stated that he has set up a team to block all online piracy websites.
While the anti-piracy team managed to block most of these websites, they could not take down TamilRockers, which has a wide network. In an earlier interview, Vishal blamed the government for being inactive in battling piracy issues.
The team of Sandakozhi 2 is in shock because the leak could affect the box office collections of the film.
