Emraan Hashmi on ‘Raaz Reboot’ leak
Films leaking online before their cinematic release has become an unfortunate common problem for Bollywood in recent times. ��After ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Great Grand Masti’ and ‘Sultan’, ‘Raaz Reboot’ is the latest of this year’s releases to have leaked online before its release date. ��Emraan��Hashmi, who features in the film, has taken to Twitter to express his views on the same.
Hashmi tweeted, “#RaazReboot is to be watched in the theatres. Stay away from piracy please!”
He followed this up with a longer message, stating, “About twenty mins ago, I decided to unwind a bit and go on to Twitter. I usually look at it as a way of connecting with my fans, who I look at as an extension of my family…��It’s always a positive experience, connecting with them. But the first thing I saw a few moments backwas the trends list which to my horror read “Raaz Reboot Leaked”. A lot of work goes into a film, whether good or bad. A lot of people toila way, striving to entertain you as well as run their kitchens. Piracy is a rampant problem, as we have seen over the past few months with a few movies that have been leaked online before their theatrical release. ��I won’t add fuel to fire by harping about conspiracy theories… I won’t point fingers. I don’t intend to get into a public mud-slinging match. Instead, I will request you to give the film a fair chance by watching it in theatres. It’s a request, which I think anyone sensible will entertain. Love, Emraan.”
Directed by Vikram Bhatt, ‘Raaz Reboot’ is the fourth film of the popular ‘Raaz’ franchise. ��Alongside Hashmi, it also stars Kriti Kharbanda and Gaurav Arora. ��The film hits cinemas across the globe this Friday, 16th September.
