‘Newton’ Hit by Piracy; Might Affect its Box-Office Collections

India’s official entry to the Oscars has been speared by piracy. Newton, starring Rajkummar Rao, has been leaked online just 24 hours after its theatrical release. It’s available to download on most torrent sites in average quality, barring some who got their hands on an HD print of the film.

Receiving rave reviews from critics, the film will surely be hit by this illegal act. But the official entry to the Oscars might attract viewers to the theatre.

Newton, Rajkummar Rao’s fourth film of the year may not have gotten a good number of screens, but trade analyst Girish Johar predicted that the film would earn Rs 1 crore on the very first day. Add the fact that the Puja holidays are upon us, it might act as an added advantage for the film.

I am expecting Newton to get an opening of Rs 1 crore- Rs 1.5 crore. The film is already getting excellent feedback and good word-of-mouth. It is sure to do well in the coming days.
