The action-adventure movie was released on November 8, 2018, during the week of Diwali, but some are now eager to stream the movie online.
How to watch Thugs of Hindostan online
Thugs of Hindostan was leaked online just hours after its release.
The website Tamilrockers, known for hosting pirated versions of films, was the one to publish the movie for eager fans online.
Tamilrockers have reportedly also leaked films like “Sarkar” and “Kaala” in the past.
Is it legal to stream?
Any site purporting to have Thugs of Hindostan available to stream is likely illegal, to be forewarned.
After the leak, the Tamil Film Producers Council released a statement, urging the Tamilrockers website must be prevented from such piracy.
The council has also stated theatre owners should deploy people to prevent moviegoers from recording movies.
Following the leak of the Bollywood movie, fans have also urged authorities to take severe action against the website.
