Here’s What Salman Khan Has To Say After Radhe Streams On Pirated Websites
Salman Khan film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai was released on OTT platform ZEE5 on May 13. Within a few hours of its release, Radhe was reportedly leaked on the Internet.
On Sunday, the actor issued a warning to those participating in the illegal circulation of the film and said that they could find themselves in trouble with the cyber cell. In his statement, he called illegal streaming of Radhe, a “serious crime”. He wrote, “We offered you to watch our film Radhe at a reasonable price of INR 249 per view. Inspite of that pirated sites are streaming Radhe illegally which is a serious crime.”
Khan added that “Cyber Cell is taking action against these illegal pirated websites”. The Radhe actor urged everyone to not “participate in piracy”. “Please don’t participate in piracy or the Cyber Cell will take action against you as well. Please understand you will get into a lot of trouble with the Cyber cell,” an excerpt from his statement read.

Aap sabse ek commitment maangta hoon ye film enjoy karein sahi platform pe. Toh is Eid hoga audience ka commitment. no piracy in entertainment . (Many people work hard while making a film and I feel very sad when some people resort to piracy to watch it. I would ask for a commitment from all of you that you enjoy films on the right platform. This Eid will be about the audience’s commitment — no piracy in entertainment.”)
