Shah Rukh Khan's latest release 'Zero' has become a real buzzing topic online since it released on December 21. The film has opened to some mixed reviews and the fate seems uncertain until the collection figures start coming in. Now, right on the first day, the Aanand L Rai directorial is facing a new kind of trouble altogether.
According to reports, the film has already been leaked online. The notorious online piracy website TamilRockers has already put up the film's link on their website. Interestingly though they don't have the entire film in that link and it is only in parts. Not only that, but apparently there are some fake Twitter accounts that have started leaking clips from the film on the microblogging platform. There seems to be a bizarre trend of a smear campaign on the movie, for a day before the film's release, there were fake accounts of famous critics and trade analysts on Twitter which bashed the movie. It remains to be seen how the film fares with odds seemingly mounting against it.
Meanwhile, Zero is also not the only film to fall prey to this menace of online piracy. Started out at the time when Vijay's 'Sarkar' came out, subsequent big releases like Aamir Khan's 'Thugs of Hindostan', Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar's '2.0' and many other films also suffered the same fate. It remains to be seen how the makers will deal with this new problem.
Coming back to the film, the internet has been abuzz with discussion and opinions on how one should define the film. It has received mixed reviews from the viewers who have already started analyzing the film on social media. While many praised the film for the performance of the actors and the unique content of the film, a lot of them have also criticized it for having no storyline. Although the tangled emotional plot of the film may not be appealing to everyone, it assures to leave a mark on the audience.
