Yesterday there were news doing rounds that few scenes from Rajinikanth's Lingaa will be deleted to make the movie more entertaining and racier. The latest news is that a total of six scenes have been erased thereby shortening the film by 10 minutes.
There was a scene where Rajinikanth(Lingaa) and Anushka will be locked up in a small room inside a 5 star hotel in which rare antique jewellery would be displayed. At that time our Superstar would ask Anushka to help him in making some markings on the inside of the wall and door in order to get out of the small room. That particular scene has been deleted.
In another instance when Rajinikanth(Lingaa) comes to his native village for the first time, there was a comedy scene where in a fake poet would sing a few lines praising Rajinikanth in order to flatter him hoping that he would present the poet with some costly gifts. Though the scene was humorous enough to tickle your funny bones, it has however been erased.
In the pre-independence era, Sonakshi Sinha would've set a trap for a mathematics teacher in the village along with her teenage friends to which Rajinikanth(Raja Lingeshwaran) falls prey. That scene too has been deleted.
Rajinikanth(Raja Lingeshwaran), while busily planning to construct the dam, Sonakshi Sinha would enter the scene to spoil all the plans by mistakingly spilling a cup of coffee on the papers containing the construction plan. Rajinikanth would lose his cool and would ask Sonakshi to leave the place at once. The scene had Rajinikanth displaying his anger wonderfully well but now, it cannot be viewed at the theatre.
On Rajinikanth's(Raja Lingeshwaran) birthday, he would've invited some important guests to his palace. While its an important scene in the movie, the arrival of each and every guest was shown initially and that part is no longer in the movie. And finally, a part of the climax involving a hot air balloon has been taken out.
