‘Raees’ director Rahul Dholakia heartbroken over film’s online leak


Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’ has been leaked online. As of this moment, copies of the movie are now being downloaded and circulated on mobile phones.

Director, Rahul Dholakia quite upset with this. He took to his social networking handle to express his dismay.

“Depressing and heartbreaking to see people watching on phones and online (pirated) when the film is made for big screen experience” he wrote.

Rahul also went ahead to thank the thousands who religiously flocked to single screens and multiplexes to catch the film multiple times.

Despite the entire film being illegally leaked, ‘Raees’ has managed to make its mark at the box-office by collecting an impressive Rs 109.01 crore in the domestic box office, within seven days of its release.

Before Raees, films like ‘Sultan’, ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Great Grand Masti’ and ‘Raaz Reboot’ had also fallen prey to the growing piracy industry.
