The preview copy of Ketan Mehta-directed ‘Manjhi - The Mountain Man’, which is slated for a theatrical release on August 21, got leaked online on peer-to-peer file sharing platform on Monday (August 10, 2015).
Manjhi is the fourth film that leaked online before the release this year. A pirated copy of Kamal Haasan's ‘Papanasam’ was leaked online soon after its release and the censor copy of Malayalam blockbuster ‘Premam’ was leaked in June. There have been many more to the list.
Netizens were surprised to find the watermarked preview copy of the Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer on several torrent sites. The film, a biopic, is based on Dasharath Manjhi, a resident of Gehlaur village in Atri block of Gaya district in Bihar.
‘Manjhi -The Mountain Man’ also features Radhika Apte, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Pankaj Tripathi in important roles.
