Sony Pictures accidentally uploaded an entire film Khali the Killer on YouTube instead of its red-band trailer.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the production house uploaded the 89 minutes and 46 seconds movie on July 3 on its YouTube channel.
The goof-up was first spotted by entertainment news website CBR.com, and the movie was live for eight hours before it was taken down from YouTube.

**promptly uploads the full movie instead of the trailer**
In those eight hours it did invite some attention from YouTube users, but in the midst of all this, the film got an exposure of a different kind. Plenty of Twitter users found the goof-up hilarious:
For those who missed this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, the film is currently available on rent or digital purchase.
Khali the Killer is written and directed by Jon Matthews. It stars Richard Cabral who plays the lead role of a hitman whose final job goes sideways when he happens to develop empathy towards the intended victims.
In November last year, the production house had launched the film on DVD.
