Rajinikanth pays and sorts out ‘Lingaa’ issue with distributors

Rajnikanth’s ‘Lingaa’ was one of the biggest disasters of 2014 and the distributors, who claimed to have suffered heavy losses, got together to protest outside the superstar’s house.

After months of protests and media coverage, the issue with distributors has finally been resolved as Rajnikanth agreed to pay a lump sum amount.

“Rajni sir paid the amount to producer Rockline Venkatesh and requested him to settle the losses of the distributors. While it’s not known how much he paid, but the distributors have agreed to call off the protest” a source close to the actor said.

‘Lingaa’ distributors claimed to have lost around Rs 35 crore after the film failed to live upto its pre-release hype. After a good start at the ticket window, the film crashed at the box office during the weekdays.

Directed by K.S. Ravi Kumar, ‘Lingaa’ also starred Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty.



  • We Bhai-fans think that CHENNAI EXPRESS was hit only because of Rajni Sir .
    As next SRK – Rohit film doesn’t have Rajni Sir , so this film can’t break the record of our Bhai’s MARIGOLD , which is 1 crore .
    oops … I try to forget these films but I can’t !

  • Rajini sir have Golden heart n he cares about people unlike Ra.One producer who claimed a false verdict n placed the burden on poor distributors !!!!!

  • Actually he don’t have to do that.
    It’s business. in business there may be profit and loss also.

    He is such a gentleman!

  • even rajni failed…
    south indians should accept hes just an actor not a demigod as assumed by the people(sorry but i dont wanna offense anyone)

    i know lallu will book eid 2017 for dabang or sultan..

  • @REAL bhai fan. hahahaha lol no one said anything like that :D . Lol so my queen srk’s fans are indirectly accepting that CE was a hit because of Rajni kanth, aren’t we srk fans accepting the truth , yes we queen’s fans are so awesome , 3.9 billion of them :D

    I am desperately waiting for my cute queen srk’s sequel to the biggest ever mega bigbang buster in bollywood history the MAYA MEMSAAB, we 3.9 billion fans of srk are eagerly waiting for it , we want karan johar to act in the movie and we want the sequel to be named as “MAHA KARAN SAHAB” :D

  • Rajni sir!!!!!aayyo!!!!!paid for losses?just like our bhai paid to Eros international for jai ho?also couldn’t give a hit to have s brother sohail with out EID?so sad?

    These masala film heroes are always over hyped and stupid Indians like to see their downgraded film.no offense to Rajni sir but offence to lallu.

  • King should learn something from rajni sir and return some money to the producer of Sabse Shana Kaun due to its disastrous performane.

  • @Javed.
    christmas 2016 has been already booked by Aamir Khan for Dangal.
    YRF’s Sultan is releasing in 2016.
    SRK is most likely to have only one release in 2016 which is Raees, and may be FAN too if it is pushed to 2016!

  • Rajnikant is overrated.The popularity which he enjoys in the interiors of south is the same salman khan enjoys in whole of india.

  • @sss ..jai ho was released wid the minimum ticket price n its not manupulate like ur queen did fo happy new year ..!! See ur queen even he is trying to release in Eid now whats ur take on this ..!! Swagger

  • @tiger,but our bhai didn’t paid a penny to Eros international after disastrous performance of jai ho!what’s your opinion about that?

    @sahir Dilwala,@javed,that’s very bad news for me actually.because I don’t want My KING to act with crap directors like murugados whether in original scripts/remakes.because hr is the not the level director to direct KING KHAN ,he is fit for akki/amir who is desperately seeking for a hit.waiting for DON3,ADITYA CHOPRA’S NEXT.

    @sami,CHRISTMAS 2016 reserved by Ranbir-Ayan’s superhero movie as well amir’s dangal pandey.amir will shift the release as this time no brand is there,might KING KHAN likely to be snatched that too from our tingu khan.

  • However, i wanted to ask these distributors, if in future they make more than what they expected from a Rajini movie, will they share it with him?

  • I saw movie after critics review ; no one critics given below 2/5 star and also the movie was not bad so how can happend all this

  • @ivan waiba,look at the manipulation by our bhabijaan:



    It’ your bhabijaan is the winner in manipulation.
