The Lion King, which released today has been making noise for all the right reasons. In terms of the Indian market, with voice-overs of artistes like Shah Rukh Khan, son Aryan Khan and Shreyas Talpade amongst others, along with the childhood connect is attracting massive audiences to the ticket windows. But unfortunately, the movie has been leaked online!
While the movie was enjoying a great start at the box office, and numbers in double digits were expected – it has become a victim of piracy as a print of the movie has been leaked online in both English & Hindi versions. This indeed is going to affect the collections of the movie in huge numbers.
For the ones wondering, there’s only and only TamilRockers who have committed this cyber crime yet again!
The Lion King follows the adventures of Simba, who is to succeed his father Mufasa, as King of the Pride Lands, and narrates a tale of how he rises up to the occasion despite several attempts to bring him down by his villainous uncle Scar.
“The Jungle Book” fame director Jon Favreau has re-imagined the world of Disney’s classic to bring alive the new live-action version. He has stayed true to the classic story of Simba and used pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring the iconic characters alive on the big screen in a new way.
For Shah Rukh, The Lion King has always been special.
“For one, it didn’t have a human being in it, and (secondly) it was a film that was based on the relationship of a father and a son. That was special.”
“It’s the kind of movie that you can watch with all your children, whatever age and stage they are at. Even without being an actor and just as an audience, the movie is a wholesome experience. It’s a complete film,” the actor said.
