Rajinikanth Not Ready To Compensate For Vikrama Simha Losses
The best quality in Super Star Rajinikanth which makes him stand on top separating from other stars in Indian film industry is his humanistic nature. His ethical stance of helping distributors financially by returning their major loss share whenever his films incur losses is rarest quality which we find only in Rajinikanth. He has done that many times in past and very recently Rajini returned his remuneration to the buyers when ‘Lingaa’ and ‘Kochadaiyaan’ suffered severely.
However, Lakshmi Ganapathy Films owners who released Telugu version ‘Vikrama Simha’ say that they haven’t received any support from Rajini. So, they are halting ‘Kabali’ release. KP Chowdary and Praveen Varma are the two who bagged ‘Kabali’ Telugu rights. They also completed a major pre release business by selling theatrical rights to local distributors. However, Telugu Distribution Council is facing the allegations of harassing the local distributors by stopping them from paying the amounts to KP Chowdary and Praveen Varma.
After making repeated attempts to meet Rajinikanth or his wife Latha to sort out the issue, there isn’t a reaction from them. Even C Kalyan tried to meet Latha at her residence but of no use. In turn she informed ‘Kabali’ producer Kalaipuli S Thanu not to encourage ‘Vikrama Simha’ financial issues at this point of time.
‘Rajini and Latha are behaving selfishly. They could have solved the problem in few minutes. There might be someother issue between Rajini and Lakshmi Ganapathy Films which is why Rajini is not ready to compensate on their incurred losses. How far is it right for them to keep ‘Kabali’ Telugu release uncertain because we deposited 50 percent amount and ready to pay remaining 50 percent today to get the key for downloading our cube print. We are confused about the release,’ a local distributor from Andhra Pradesh reported us with cash in his bag.
