As per reports, India has seen a big spike in online piracy in the post-COVID-19 era. Online film piracy rose 62% in India in the last week of March 2020. "Somehow, we don’t seem to mind that malware attached to some of these sites may eat into our own data and damage our private systems," senior executive at a technology solutions firm told The Mint, adding that names like Stremio, Popcorn Time, 123Movies and Tamil Rockers top the list of torrent websites offering movies for free.
Laxmii is directed by Raghava Lawrence, and is the Hindi remake of his hit Tamil film, Kanchana 2. The movie also stars Kiara Advani in a key role.
