London, Aug 5: An unreleased Episode 4 of ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 — to be shown on HBO on the night of August 6 — has been leaked and it is not from an earlier HBO hack but from its distribution partner Star India, the media reported on Saturday.

According to The Verge, the leaked Episode 4 has Star India’s logo seen appearing throughout the episode leaked on the internet.

A spokesperson from Star India acknowledged the leak in a statement given to The Verge.

“This confirms the compromise of Episode 4 of Game of Thrones Season 7, earlier this afternoon,” a Star India spokesperson was quoted as saying.

“We take this breach very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations at our and the technology partner’s end’ to swiftly determine the cause. This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action,” the report added.

According to the report, “Star India appears to have leaked the episode online through its own website”.

Mobile comparison website ‘Smartprix’ spotted a direct link to the MP4 of the episode at Star India’s own distribution site.

Later, people started downloading ‘GoT’ Episode 4 and sharing it with friends on various social media platforms.

Earlier, in a separate data breach, the hackers who leaked unaired episodes of HBO’s shows including ‘GoT’ have now threatened to release additional content on August 6.

The hacker group wrote in an automated email reply sent to Variety.com, that it will release the leak gradually every week and added that the next release may come this Sunday at 12 GMT (5 p.m. IST).

The group also repeated its claim that it had obtained a total of 1.5TB of data when it broke into HBO’s computer networks.

Akshay’s ‘Gold Trailer’ shows one man’s struggle to make India proud

Gold poster Akshay Kumar

New Delhi, June 25: After releasing some intriguing posters, the makers of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gold’ have finally dropped the official trailer of the upcoming film on Monday.

Gold is a story of one man’s dream, dedication and struggle. And, he thus makes India proud.

The trailer opens with a voice-over announcing the words, “Gold, British India,” and an intense-looking Akshay giving ‘the stare’ to the British flag. What transpires over a couple of minutes in the trailer is a mix of patriotism and sports, just everything one could have expected from Khiladi Kumar.

Akshay, perhaps for the first time, will be seen as a Bengali in the film and the trailer gives a peek into that persona.

Naagin star Mouni Roy appears for merely five seconds in the trailer chastising Akshay in Bengali. She plays the actor’s wife in Gold. Akshay then proceeds to deliver a monologue laced with an almost overbearing love for the country.

The over two-minute long trailer also featured Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh and Sunny Kaushal, each of them a hockey player with a passion to play the game.

The film is about India’s first Olympic medal win as a free nation in 1948 at the 14th Olympic Games at London. It will release on Independence Day in 2018.

Post Gold, Akshay will be seen in Kesari which is again a period film based on the Battle of Saragarhi.
