The charming Sivakarthikeyan is one of the biggest and most popular names in the Tamil film industry today. The 'BO King' enjoys a strong fan following thanks to his good looks, charismatic personality, amicable nature, versatility as an actor and a positive attitude. He has starred in several highly successful films and this has established him as a force to be reckoned with. Now, here is some disturbing and shocking news for the star and his fans.
Seema Raja Leaked Online!
In an unfortunate development, his latest release Seema Raja has been leaked online! A host of pirated versions of the film are available online on several websites and can be downloaded.
Will The Business Be Affected?
Seema Raja is a crucial release for Sivakarthikeyan and it has been shot against a relatively high/modest budget. As such, it needs to have a long and fruitful run at the box office in order to be a commercial success. As the full movie has been leaked online, the box office collections are likely to be affected.
About Seema Raja
In case you did not know, Seema Raja is a rural-entertainer and features Sivakarthikeyan in a brand new lively avatar. Directed by Ponram, it revolves around a king who tries to save his people from a difficult situation. Besides Sivakarthikeyan, it also features Samantha Akkineni in the lead. The supporting cast features names such as Simran and Soori. Seema Raja hit the screens yesterday (September 13, 2018) and opened on a solid response at the Chennai box office, collecting nearly Rs 1 Crore on Day 1 itself.
Are The Anti-piracy Measures Strong Enough?
As it so happens, TFPC President Vishal has been quite vocal about the menace of piracy and has taken quite a few steps to control the problem. While quite a few notorious websites have already been closed down because of these measures, there is still tremendous scope for improvement.
Interestingly, piracy is a major issue and it has been plaguing Kollywood for quite some time now. Previously, Superstar Rajinikanth's Kaala too was leaked online, shortly after its release, much to the shock of the makers. Similarly, just like Kollywood, Bollywood too has suffered because of piracy. Young actor Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju was leaked online and this did not go down well with the makers. Let us hope that the menace of piracy is curbed at the earliest, so that no one else suffers because of it.
