Mumbai, Sep 14: Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt has denied that his forthcoming film “Raaz Reboot” has leaked online.
It was reported that the fourth instalment of the popular “Raaz” franchise, helmed by Bhatt, has been leaked. The news of its leak went viral online on Tuesday night, with lead actor Emraan Hashmi urging his fans to avoid watching the leaked version.
The filmmaker said he was amazed to see that within 10 to 15 minutes of the news being leaked that the film is online and downloads reached 5,000.
“Great Grand Masti’ is an example of how terribly the business got affected. So, of course, a film after it has released, when it leaks online, it damages business. So you can imagine for a film that has not even released,” he added.
“Ultimately, I think it is robbery, stealing. It is stealing someone’s hard work… I would just tell people that, guys if you aren’t going to steal cars and money, then why do you go to steal someone’s work on the torrent?”
“I would just appeal to people’s sense of goodness because I don’t think there is any law on the digital space. It is very difficult to police that space,” he said.
“What I would like to add is that watch films in the theatre and if you decide not to watch them, then don’t watch them. But do not download,” he said.
The film will release on Friday.(IANS)
