‘Lingaa’ distributors may protest again

Chennai, June 4 (IANS) A group of distributors of Rajinikanth-starrer Tamil film “Lingaa”, which resulted in heavy losses, may protest again if the remainder of the amount that was promised to them is not settled in a week’s time.

Following initial protests, Rajinikanth had agreed to pay back Rs. 12.5 crore. However, distributors claim only Rs.6 crore was handed over to them as part of compensation.

“Distributors who had purchased the movie on minimum guarantee have not been compensated. Hence, we want Rajinikanth sir to intervene and settle this issue within a week, failing which we will again protest in front of his house,” distributor Singaravelan told IANS.

He added that only Rs.6 crore of Rs.12.5 crore compensation has been settled and that nobody knows what happens to the rest.

Now, the distributors are demanding Rs.15 crore more as compensation.

Distributor Tiruppur Subramaniam, who was entrusted with the responsibility of compensating other distributors by Rajinikanth, says the actor has done what he could afford.

“We’re waiting for funds from the film’s producer Rockline Venkatesh, who had promised to share the losses with Rajinikanth,” he said.

Directed by K.S. Ravi Kumar, “Lingaa” features Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles.
