From shooting a film to releasing it on the screens takes a good amount of funds, when we all watch these movies by booking the tickets and / or the OTT platforms then these films make a profit. But nowadays the piracy in this field is affecting the business and the makers are not able to make enough profit.
Undoubtedly both RRR and KGF Chapter 2 are big blockbusters and made their places in the 1000+ crores club. According to the sources Rajamouli’s RRR is a worldwide success and collected 1127.65 crores rupees from the box office, while KGF: Chapter 2 went ahead from RRR and collected 1129.38 from the box office and became the highest grossing movie of 2022. So the fans are eagerly waiting for the OTT debut of both RRR and KGF: Chapter 2.
If we said that the High Quality prints of both KGF: Chapter 2 and RRR have leaked on the internet then this is not the big thing, nowadays latest movies and tv shows are easily available on the internet a day or two after the official release. This directly affected the number of audiences which will watch the movie on OTT platforms because a portion of the audience may be watching the pirated prints which will result in the reduced viewership and less profit from the OTTs.
Now coming to the OTT platform information then ZEE5 owns the rights of broadcasting RRR in south languages and Netflix has the rights to broadcasting in Hindi language. KGF: Chapter 2 will be distributed by Amazon Prime Video. Official announcement of OTT release dates in this case is yet awaited.
In the end we would like to say that these fake, pirated prints and the piracy itself ruins the buzz and the hype created by the makers and affects the earnings. The illegal leaks need to stop immediately as it directly affects the business in a major way. Let’s see what happens when both films will hit these streaming platforms.
