Spoof on ‘Lingaa’ controversies titled ‘Naanum Herodhaan’

Chennai, June 29 (IANS) The spoof film on the controversies surrounding superstar Rajinikanth-starrer “Lingaa” has been titled “Naanum Herodhaan”, which features actor Powerstar Srinivasan in the lead role.

“The film was officially launched on Friday. The regular shooting will start soon,” a source told IANS.

The film is said to be made on the lines of the film “Tamizh Padam”, a spoof that took a dig at several popular Tamil films without hurting the sentiments of anybody associated with it.

“Naanum Herodhaan” is being produced by Singaravelan, one of the distributors of “Lingaa”.

The producer is said to be planning to distribute the film free of cost.

“He wants to help all those who burnt their pockets by distributing ‘Lingaa’. Hence, he has decided to release this film free of cost in order to allow theatre owners and other distributors to recover lost money,” the source said.

K.S. Ravikumar-directed “Lingaa”, which released on Rajinikanth’s birthday in 2014, turned out to be a dud, resulting in heavy losses for its distributors who paid exorbitant price to buy and release the film.

Following the film’s poor show at the box office, a group of distributors demanded to be compensated for the losses as the film failed miserably. Rajinikanth was forced to intervene and was even made to pay over Rs.10 crore.
