While the Mahira Khan and Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees had bad fate on its side last year, the film has surprisingly managed to get other kinds of achievements to its name, which we are sure they don’t want to celebrate!
As reported by a leading Indian tabloid, a list released by a German-based firm revealed that Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan starrer Raees was the most pirated film of 2017. The number of files shared of the film is a whopping 6,187,369. It is followed by Kaabil and then Jolly LLB 2.
No surprises there, right? Raees was one of the most highly anticipated films in India and Pakistan as it was Mahira Khan’s Bollywood debut opposite the King Khan. However, due to worsening conditions between the two countries, the film was not released in Pakistan, which probably resulted in half of these pirated versions!
Raees‘ director Rahul Dholakia took to Twitter to express his views on his film being most pirated in 2017. “#Raees most Pirated film of 2017. Now how does one react to this?” he wrote.
