The much-in-talk film Shikara released on February 7, 2020, has unfortunately been hit by the notorious piracy torrent site Tamilrockers. The movie Shikara is now available for download online for free which allows users to watch it at home instead of cinema halls. This definitely affects the box office collections and the producer’s business. And the clash with Aditya Roy Kapur strarrer ‘Malang’ is giving a tough completion on box office. Some sources also reported that the movie Shikara was leaked online on the site before the release.
The piracy websites which include TamilRockers, 9xmovies, Filmywap, KickassTorrents has become an issue of grave concern after leaking recent releases like Street Dancer 3D, Panga, Bala, Malang, Good Newzz and many others. Please note that downloading and watching a movie in India from illegal, unverified or pirated websites is an offence. Even after so many court orders and legal actions, Tamilrockers is still giving fresh releases of Bollywood and Hollywood movies.

Twitter Reaction And Tweets on Shikara
It has secularised the #HinduGenocide in #Kashmir and romanticised it for the mega bucks it will make.
Our homes and murders are a mere prop in this story.
Massacres, rapes and vandalised temples must've been too gory to qualify for even a prop, in a love story.

Sad to see the sense of betrayal of many KPs after seeing #Shikara
Will just say that Dogras were upset with how help in Jammu(already oppressed region with strained infrastructure)was mocked but what happened in the Valley was a”falling out with friends”in the Director’s words. https://t.co/LLxMOYU6I8
