'Sultan' leaked online hours before release


Hours before its official release on Wednesday, Salman Khan starrer Sultan was leaked online, cyber crime experts said.

One of year's most awaited films, Sultan was apparently leaked online yesterday. However, so far no police complaint has been lodged in connection.

"If one tries proxy server of other countries Sultan is out online. But if you try it here (in India), it is blocked. If one goes to watch it online, a message flashes on websites that the content is removed as per Copyright Act," cyber crime expert Ritesh Bhatia, said.

"It is unfortunate that films are getting leaked online before its official release. Proper action and investigation needs to be done. It's the need of the hour," he added.

Producers of Sultan, Yash Raj Films, however, denied that the film has been leaked online.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Salman's annual Eid release saw a bumper opening today with trade analysts predicting a Rs 150 crore opening weekend business.

Salman is playing the titular role of a wrestler from Haryana while Anushka Sharma is playing the female lead in the Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film.
