Big Movie Effect: 18 Websites BlockedRanbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra Part One: Shiva will hit the theatres this Friday. There has been a huge hype around the film. And to add some real-life spice, the onscreen love birds Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt got married off-screen and are in the process of becoming parents too. However, despite the desi tadka added to the film, there hasn’t been much interest since the promos were released.

While the crew is trying hard to promote the film as a major release, the audiences seem to be more interested in seeing the end product on the big screen rather than being taken in by the promotional activities.

Given such a scenario, the Delhi High Court has blocked 18 allegedly rogue sites from streaming the film within hours of its release. Star India filed a complaint that it is fair and appropriate to let Brahmastra have its theatrical run and then allow the film to be streamed on chosen channels.

Of late, the so-called rogue channels have been releasing a film within hours, and this Star India says mars the theatrical run. So, the judge of the HC bench has given a verdict in favor of Star India and has asked the Department of Telecommunications and Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology to block all such websites that might and could stream Brahmastra Part one – Shiva.
