‘Lingaa’ distributors to beg outside Rajnikanth’s house on Tuesday

The distributors and exhibitors of ‘Lingaa’, who have been demanding compensation for the losses they suffered over Rajnikanth’s much-hyped flop, have decided to beg outside the superstar’s residence on Tuesday.

Apparently, producer Rockline Venkatesh, had promised that ‘Lingaa’ would do better business than Rajnikanth’s ‘Enthiran’, but the film went on to be Rajnikanth’s biggest disaster in recent times.

“Last month it was decided we will be compensated after extensive accounting of the losses. And for this, Rajnikanth sir had appointed his friend and distributor Tirupur Subramaniam, who ascertained the quantum loss suffered by us. However, the producer is unwilling to pay Rs 35 crore” distributor Singaravadivelan told reporters.

The distributor also added that Rockline Venkatesh earned huge money over the film as he sold the rights to Eros International for Rs 100 crore. However, Venkatesh has decided not to refund the money to distributors and theatre owners.

“The amount we claim as refund is far less than the salary paid to Rajnikanth. If Eros had paid so much to buy the film, we don’t understand why it is difficult for producer Venkatesh to refund us when he had promised us that the film will do better business than ‘Enthiran'” he said.

“They’ve made us beg for the refund. And we will do it as we’ve run out of options. We will beg right outside Rajinikanth’s house on Tuesday” he added.

‘Lingaa’ released in theatres on 12th December 2014, which also happened to Rajnikanth’s 64th birthday.

  • Our hyderabadi engineering genius complan boy thinks distributors losing money over Ratoon Point One and MNIK is no big deal as movie was farcically declared a hit so no big deal… Afterall our king is consistent like Virat Kohli in delivering hits n hitting centuries whereas ATBBs or double centuries are reserved for the Rohit Sharmas and Aamir Khans of this world. Kings fans are happy with hit films but we fans are ecstatic watching ATBB movies every christmas…!

  • King biult a ramp outside his house to keep the distributors of MNIK n Ratoon away but the destruction of the ramp will mean desperate distributors can now get close enough to king to beg for a refund for heavy losses they suffered 😩😱😪😭😂😢😓😥😨
