Meanwhile, with the film performing well, it has also come under the radar of the notorious torrent website Tamilrockers which despite several bans bounces back every time with a new domain. Users are accessing it via proxy servers. Some of the films that have been leaked by Tamilrockers are - Uri: The Surgical Strike, Petta, 2.0, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Viswasam and The Accidental Prime Minister. Even Hollywood films are not safe from its clutches as it even leaked Aquaman and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. After 2.0 producers Lyca Productions appealed, the Madras High Court ordered the internet service providers to ban 12,000 websites, out of which 2000 were said to be run by Tamilrockers alone.
