The weekend is not that happening as with a major release, there are no other big releases. (Read: Happy Birthday Rajinikanth: How superstar came to be)
The major release is Rajinikanth’s ‘Lingaa‘. Donning a dual role along with lead stars Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty, Rajinikanth’s ‘Lingaa’ is considered as one of the most important films in the Superstar’s career and is produced by his old friend, Kannada producer Rockline Venkatesh. Sources report that the world rights of the movie were sold at Rs 160 crores to Eros International.
Besides the fact that a fortune has been invested in ‘Lingaa‘, the major challenge before the Superstar would be to prove his support base has not eroded since the release of his previous flick ‘Enthiran’.
‘Lingaa‘ is also the first movie that is getting released on his birthday – December 12. No prizes for guessing. The movie is set to set the Box Office on fire.
The competition to ‘Lingaa’ is TV actor Barun Sobti’s ‘Main Aur Mr Riight’ co-starring Shenaz Treasurywala, who has come into limelight owing to the open letter she wrote to the influential men of the country. The movie is a rom com based on the confusions of love and choosing the Mr Perfect.
While one is Goliath, other is a Minnow. That still makes a perfect recipe for a perfect weekend.
