Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta has found its way to piracy site Tamilrockers. Yes, even Thalaivar couldn’t escape the wrath of piracy.
The Karthik Subbaraj directorial, which is a glorious throwback to the Rajini of the 80s and 90s, is available for download on Tamilrockers.
This, despite a court order to block piracy sites. While producers and artistes continue to lose money, sites like Tamilrockers are thriving and how.
Petta is the first time that Rajinikanth is collaborating with acclaimed director Karthik Subbaraj, who is a self-confessed fan of the Superstar.
“I was working at a software company but it is because of Rajinikanth sir I became passionate about films. Rajinikanth sir sends a lot of positive vibes even when he is miles away. After Pizza, I got a call from Rajinikanth’s house. I thought some of my friends were pulling a prank on me until I heard his voice from the other end,” Subbaraj had said at the audio launch of Petta.
Petta, which also features Trisha, Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui among others, hit theaters on January 10.
