It is an open secret that South superstar Rajinikanth will always stand for his film distributors when the film bombs at the box office. Many a times Rajanikanth has given back the money to the distributors to cover up their losses for buying his movie. And here is such crisis situation that Rajanikanth is facing now.
As per the reports, it is learnt that Rajanikanth is reportedly under immense pressure as he has to rake in over Rs 130 Crore with his next film “Lingaa” in order to bail out the hefty losses incurred to distributors due to his previous film “Kochadaiyaan”. The 3D experimental film directed by her own daughter Soundarya R. Ashwin suffered losses of Rs 40 Crore. In order to cover it up, Rajini is said to have deliver blockbuster with “Lingaa”.
With producer Rockline Venkatesh, reportedly pumping in 70 crores and is expected to do business for 90 plus crores business, so, Rajni’s task has almost ‘doubled’ and now it all depends on Rajni’s charisma and director K S Ravikumar’s script. “Trailer has received mixed response, unlike Robo trailer, which had hit bull’s eye,” says a distributor.
Expected to be released on Rajni’s birthday (Dec 12), Rajini is going to be in tense mood as he would be keeping his fingers crossed over the result of “Lingaa”. Never Rajini would have celebrated birthday with so much tension. We have to see whether Rajini will pull it off or stumble again?
Lets hope for the best. What say folks?
