Mumbai, May 16, 2021: Salman Khan starrer "Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai" released on various digital platforms as well as in theaters on May 13. The movie got a huge response from fans and over 4 million people watched the movie across mediums, according to the data shared by the makers.
However, one of the downfalls for the OTT movies that it becomes easily available to download for free on different pirated sites, which also happened with Radhe. Within the hours of its release, Radhe got leaked online and is available for free download.
Taking note of piracy, Salman Khan penned a strong-worded statement to address the issue warning that the Cyber cell will take stringent action not only against pirated sites but also against people who do piracy.
"We offered you to watch our film Radhe at a reasonable price of INR 249 Per View. In spite of that Pirated sites are streaming Radhe illegally which is a serious crime. Cyber Cell is taking action against all these illegal pirated sites. Please don't participate in piracy or the Cyber Cell will take action against you as well. He added, Please understand you will get into a lot of trouble with the Cyber cell", Salman said in a statement.
Prior to the release of Radhe, Salman had urged fans to watch this movie on official platforms and refrain from piracy. In a video, the actor said "Many people work hard while making a film and I feel very sad when some people resort to piracy to watch it. I would ask for a commitment from all of you that you enjoy films on the right platform. This Eid will be about the audience's commitment - no piracy in entertainment".
Radhe is the second back-to-back film of Salman Khan with director Prabhu Deva after Dabangg 3. It also stars Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff, Megha Akash, and others in key roles.
