After Aascar Ravichandran postponing his big budget movie I , which was initially termed as a Diwali release, looks like the latest movie to join the list is none other than Superstar Rajinikanth's Lingaa. Yes, according to some reliable sources the producer and other prominent members from team Lingaa are in talks to release the movie on December 25th for Christmas.
Lingaa was scheduled to be released on December 12th which also happens to be Rajinikanth's birthday. But sources have revealed that the movie still has some extensive CG works that has to be completed. Though the post production works of the movie is in full swing, there are chances that the movie might not be released for Superstar's birthday, an insider has said.
Also recently, another reliable source had revealed that AR Rahman is still working on the background score of Lingaa and that it might not be possible to send the movie for censor certification with the original track. The think tank of Lingaa had planned to send the movie with the dummy track instead.
Meanwhile, The High Court has postponed the decision pertaining to the defamation case against Lingaa which was filed by a filmmaker from Madurai. Though the verdict is not expected to go against Lingaa and its team, there are a few jitters in the camp as the verdict could directly affect the release date of the film.
Considering all these facts, looks like it is almost safe to say that the release of Rajinikanth's magnum opus might be postponed for sure. While Christmas could be the next best option to release the movie, there are good chances that the movie might not be released this year at all.
