With just a few days left until the theatrical release of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s “Brahmastra Part One: Shiva”, great relief has come for the creators. The Delhi High Court on Monday banned a total of 18 notorious websites from streaming or downloading filmmaker Aya Mukerji’s highly anticipated movie. The decision comes days before the film’s September 9 release.

Amid calls for a boycott of ‘Brahmastra Part One: Shiva’, the court order comes as a big relief to the creator. According to reports, the illegal streaming of “Brahmastra” has been banned. Not only that, but the court also banned the viewing, downloading, hosting and rebroadcasting of the film.

The decision is hailed by the makers especially as several films have faced the scorch of being leaked on several torrent websites including Tamil Rockers. The movies were leaked on these notorious sites just hours after their theatrical release and were available for download in HD quality. From Gangubai Kathiawadi to RRR, KGF: Chapter 2, Laal Singh Chaddha, Karthikeya 2 and many more have been victims of piracy as the movies have been leaked on multiple websites.

Interestingly, this also marks the third collaboration between best friends Ranbir Kapoor and Ayan Mukerji. Meanwhile, Brahmastra Part One: Shiva also features actors Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy in key roles.
