Much to the delight of all Rajinikanth fans, the defamation case against Lingaa has been dismissed by the Madurai High Court Bench. Earlier a filmmaker named Ravi Rathinam had filed a case against Lingaa and its team alleging that KS Ravikumar had stolen his story from youtube and had come up with Lingaa starring Superstar Rajinikanth.
But, after counter
complaints filed by Rockline Venkatesh, KS Ravikumar and
Rajinikanth himself and due to lack of proper evidence, The
High Court has now dismissed the case which has ensured
Lingaa's release on 'Thalaivar's' birthday without any
Interestingly, another movie named Velmurugan Borewells
which has now made it to the theatres fell victim to rumours
alleging that this low budget movie is a rip off of
Lingaa's story. Rubbishing such allegations, the director
of Velmurugan Borewells has requested media and others not
to spread such rumours as it would earn a bad name for him and his
team and also would question their dignity.
Coincidentally, Velmurugan Borewells too deals with
farmers plight and their struggle to reconstruct a broken dam that
creates havoc to their everyday lives. Since the movie deals with
the issue of a broken dam which is similar to Lingaa's
storyline, rumours were spreading like raging fire.
But with everything sorted out, Superstar Rajinikanth's
Lingaa will now scorch its way into almost all the
available theatres in Tamil Nadu on December 12th. With only 9 days
left for the film's release, fans are gearing up to witness Rajini
mania come next Friday.
