Rajinikanth’s upcoming Tamil movie Petta, which is being helmed by Karthik Subbaraj, is grabbing headlines again and this time for the leaked pictures from the film’s sets. 

During the weekend, a video clip from the sets of the film was leaked on social media. It created a buzz among superstar's fans as there were huge spoilers.

Taking the matter into his hands, Subbaraj later requested fans not to share the working stills from the sets of his film Petta, which also stars Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. 

On Twitter, Subbaraj expressed his distress and requested fans and crew members to not share the videos and pictures from the shooting spot. 



“Kind request from #Petta team.. Pls do not share leaked stills or videos from shooting Spot.. Need all your support Shocked to see channels like @ThanthiTV are publishing leaked video as news. Guess next they would even telecast pirated movies as news… Completely Unethical..(sic),” he wrote on his Twitter account on Monday.

This is not the first time such an incident happened on Petta's sets. Rajinikanth’s look from his Lucknow schedule too had been leaked on Twitter.

According to reports, Sun Pictures, producer of Petta, has plans to release the Rajinikanth-starrer during Pongal.
