Rajini’s Lingaa was a massive failure and the film has brought huge losses to all the theater owners and distributors. For the losses incurred, Rajini and Rockline Venkatesh are said to have given nearly 10 crores and 70 lakhs to Tirrupur Subramaniyam and Vendhar Movies.
But the amount has not been reached to all the theater owners who screened the film. Till now, only 7 crs and 30 lakhs have been given while the theater owners are suspicious on Vendhar Movies over the remaining three crores.
It is said that theater owners will screen Paayum Puli only if Vendhar Movies settle the remaining three crores amount.
