Superstar Rajinikanth’s Lingaa is another highly anticipated movie in the works, but what else do you expect when it’s the Endhiran who’s playing the lead.
The mega flick, being directed by KS Ravikumar, is being shot at a very fast and efficient pace, and rumours have begun to surface regarding its release date.
Following Vijay’s Kaththi’s trend of a big release on the lead star’s birthday, the new reports say the Lingaa team are planning for a big opening on December 12, 2014 – which just happens to be Rajini’s birthday!
Lingaa stars Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka in the female leads. It also features the music of the maestro AR Rahman. This is the seventh film of Rajini’s for which Rahman has composed the tunes.
Rajini has a history with Ravikumar as well. The duo’s previous collaboration was the super hit film Padayappa. The director is known for focusing more on the star power of the hero and the crafting of the story than technological gimmicks and elaborate set pieces, as opposed to say.. Shankar.
But in this one, he seems to have changed his methodology a bit as he has brought in special equipment including certain hi-tech cameras to film action sequences and such.
Lingaa is being produced by Rockline Venkatesh.
The buzz on the film is so overwhelming that even though the movie is still in production, overseas distributors are competing with each other to grab the movie’s television, theatrical and video rights.
Only a Rajnikanth movie can accomplish creating such a level of excitement, and one can already tell that if the Shankar – Rajini project launches, this frenzy will be grow exponentially.
So with the fans, we wait for the Thalaivar’s birthday and the big release.
