Several distributors of Rajinikanth-starrer “Lingaa”, who have been demanding compensation over losses, can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the makers have agreed to look into the losses and settle them.
Superstar Rajinikanth has appointed distributor Tirupur Subramaniam, who’s had the experience with several such issues, to settle the matter.
“Rajini sir and producer Rockline Venkatesh have discussed and appointed distributor Tirupur Subramaniam to look into the matter. He’s been asked to check losses incurred by all the distributors who have requested for compensation,” Srithar, secretary of Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association, told IANS.
“Subramaniam has been asked to take proper accounting of the total loss incurred and submit to producer Venkatesh. Taking all this into consideration and subsequently verifying all the numbers, the distributors will be compensated,” he said.
In the past, Subramaniam had helped Rajinikanth when he faced similar situation for his films “Baba” and “Kuselan”.
