“Rajini sir’s films have always had very high success rate. People who are usually associated with his films have mostly gained. It’s unfair to hold him responsible for the losses of his film ‘Lingaa’. We strongly condemn the decision of the distributors to beg for compensation,” read a statement from TFPC.

A group of distributors of ‘Lingaa’, who suffered heavy losses, had requested a refund of about Rs.35 crore.

When producer Rockline Venkatesh agreed to settle only about 10 percent of the losses, the distributors decided to go on a begging protest outside Rajinikanth’s residence here.
