First it was the love making scene between lead actors Adil Hussain and Radhika Apte, and now the whole film Parched is leaked online by pirates.
Yes you read it right, Parched movie has been leaked online by miscreants. Some torrent sites already have the whole film, and it may have already been downloaded a thousand times in the last few hours. This may come as a huge business shock to the makers, as such films normally don’t make the kind of money any mainstream film would make. And with Parched movie leaked online, it may be a bad setback for the film to make it even average at the box office.
The Ajay Devgn produced and Leena Yadav directed arthouse cinema has done the rounds of festivals, and has been partially released in USA.

The film revolves around four women living an unwanted life in a village of north-western region of India, which still suffers from old, age-ridiculed traditions like forced child marriages and other social issues like financial difficulties, spousal and familial rape, and physically and emotionally abusive alcoholic husbands. The film stars Tannishtha Chatterjee, Riddhi Sen, Lehar Khan, Radhika Apte, Sumeet Vyas, Surveen Chawla.
Like Udta Punjab, The Great Grand Masti, Sultan, Parched has also been leaked online, and this trend is discouraging many film makers from submitting their films to film festivals, due to fear of piracy.
