Director Karthik Subbaraj, who is currently working on Rajinikanth's next film Petta, has appealed to fans and the media to not share leaked stills or videos from the film's set.

The director, who is busy shooting the second schedule of the film in Varanasi where actress Trisha Krishnan recently joined them, has took to the social media to express his displeasure over the leak.

"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 publishing leaked video as news. Guess next they would even telecast pirated movies as news... Completely Unethical...[sic]," he wrote on Twitter.

The director's appeal comes after pictures shot on the set in Varanasi were made public yesterday (7 October). The picture has Rajinikanth sporting a handle bar moustache and Trisha wearing a saree. The image led to speculation that the story has a portion set in the 1980s.

The film has a big star cast, including Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Sethupathi, Simran and Megha Akash among others. The film is being produced by Kalanithi Maran's Sun Pictures and is expected to hit screens early next year.
