After Thugs Of Hindostan, is Shah Rukh Khan's 'Zero' movie now leaked on TamilRockers, too?

If the burden of delivering a hit at the box office after a tepid outing with Jab Harry Met Sejal, Raees and Fan wasn't enough, Shah Rukh Khan has to now deal with piracy. Turns out, his latest release, Zero, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, has just been leaked online on Tamilrocker. 

Zero follows the life of a vertically challenged Bauua Singh, hailing from Meerut, essayed by Shah Rukh Khan, and his two love interests — Anushka as Aasifa Bhinder and Katrina as Babita Kumari. Needless to say, it is a love story, befitting SRK's king of romance image. 

The Aanand L Rai directorial and Red Chillies Entertainment production managed a grand opening this Friday, and we'd expect nothing less from an SRK starrer either. Now, the only thing left to do for the makers is to sit back, relax and wait for the weekend collection reports to bring in the good news. But that's not how things roll here in Bollywood. 

As Zero started trending on Twitter, almost simultaneously came the news that the much-awaited film has been leaked online. Illegal download sites like TamilRockers, Filmywap, funnyfiz and others, started sharing links of both offline and online viewing to the movie, and needless to say, it caused quite a storm in Shah Rukh's morning teacup. 

The first reviews and audience reactions hadn't even come in when the terrible news of being hit by piracy loomed large over the projected collections of Zero. 

But, Shah Rukh Khan fanatics, hold your breath and curb the urge to click on that link. For as per recent reports, even though a number of sites are claiming that they have the original film and boast of good picture quality as well, those links are no good, and will only take you around in circles, until you finally end up downloading just the trailer. 


What a bummer that would be, am I right? 

Given the practically non-existent online security in our country, there's a heavy chance that with every click on those links, we're actually sharing a bit of information about our lives, jeopardising ourselves further. This could potentially be a welcome note to hackers to hack into our systems, accounts and steal all the data they can possibly get their hands on. 

At the very least, clicking on untrustworthy links on TamilRockers, Filmywap, Funnyfiz or other websites could open up your home computers or mobile phones to numerable viruses. 

Perhaps being cautious and actually buying a ticket would be a smarter idea.
