Mimi, one of Netflix’s biggest Hindi movie releases of 2021 has dropped on the service globally a few days early after the movie leaked in full at the end of last week.
The story of how it got leaked isn’t even particularly that engrossing. It was a mistake from Jio Studios (the production company behind the film) who released it accidentally and the pirates came calling.
Trying to get ahead of the pirates, Netflix decided to move up the release date of Mimi and it was released on July 26th, 2021 after originally being scheduled for July 30th, 2021.
Netflix India’s social account was too surprised by the news seemingly in their tongue-in-cheek Tweet today.
