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.
