- Shah Rukh Khan’s much-anticipated movie Pathaan has reportedly leaked online a day before its release
- Pathaan was uploaded online by pirates in “camrip” and “pre-DVD rip” formats in multiple file sizes
- Pathaan has recorded the highest ever advance opening for any Bollywood film till date
According to reports, the film Pathaan starring Shah Rukh Khan leaked online a day before its scheduled release on January 25th. Ironically, this comes after the makers of Pathaan Yash Raj Films had issued a general anti-piracy plea on Twitter on the same day. The statement proved to be of little value to pirates, as the action thriller was reportedly uploaded on certain pirate websites. The upload print has been branded as “camrip” and “pre-DVD rip” as per reports from Times Now, and we cannot independently verify if it actually is a rip of the movie.
Pathaan leaked online
Pathaan has apparently been uploaded in various formats and is available in 460MB, 720MB, 1.2GB and 3GB file sizes. We strongly discourage readers from watching the pirated version of the movie and instead watch it in theatres or when it releases on OTT.
Pathaan OTT release
Speaking of which, a Yash Raj Films counsel revealed in the Delhi High Court that Pathaan will be released on OTT on April 25th, three months after its theatrical release. Amazon Prime Video has reportedly bagged the Pathaan OTT rights.
The film’s plot revolves around agent Pathaan, played by Shah Rukh, who has been brought back from the wilderness to neutralise a lurking terrorist threat, played by John Abraham. Find out more about Pathaan here.
Pathaan is highly anticipated especially since it marks the comeback of Shah Rukh Khan in a leading role after four years, his last film being Zero in 2018 which bombed at the box office. Pathaan is already breaking records as it recorded the highest ever advance booking for a Bollywood film, as it broke the record held by Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff starrer War.
Pathaan has been directed by Siddarth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra under YRF’s banner. The film features Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles. Pathaan has reportedly collected Rs 14.66 crore in advance bookings with over 5 lakh tickets sold for day one.
