After a pretty long wait and several delays, Prabhas' and Shraddha Kapoor's high octane action drama Saaho opened at theatres on August 30, 2019. And as ardent fans of the actors flocked to the theatres to catch up the first show of the film, the notorious piracy website Tamil Rockers took the film into its custody by leaking it before a majority of the nation could head to cinema halls for an grand cinematic experience.
Several strict actions, including a ban by the Government, have been taken against the piracy website, which is notorious to leak every latest film. Despite measures taken to prevent it, TamilRockers continue to affect the business of films by leaking them online. In order to put an end to them, the Delhi High Court had ordered to block similar piracy hubs, but Tamilrockers seem to be the largest troublemaker for filmmakers. The website keeps changing its domain extension and can also be accessed through proxy servers. The list of targets of Tamil Rockers includes films like Super 30, Batla House, Kabir Singh and several other big-budget ventures of recent times.
