Rajinikanth has time and again proved how deserving he is of his ‘Thalaiva‘ title. With his latest release Lingaa he has gone way ahead of our Bollywood stars. How you ask. Well, grapevine has it that Rajini was paid a whopping Rs 60 crore ...to work in Lingaa, which easily surpasses the benchmark of Rs 50 crore set by Hrithik Roshan a few months back when he signed Ashutosh Gowariker’s Mohenjodaro.
Rajinikanth’s Lingaa is one of the most anticipated films of the year, and is being referred to as the biggest Rajini release since Enthiran (Robot). Its music, given by AR Rahman, is already running high on the charts. Even the promos and trailers have set the pedestal for a superb Rajinikanth film. Given this scenario, there is no doubt that Lingaa will turn out to be a profitable project for the makers despite the huge chunk shed on the actor.
