Superstar Rajinikanth-starrer Lingaa has been mired in controversies ever since its release. Now, reports suggest all these controversies will be fictionalised into a spoof. Powerstar Srinivasan will play the lead.

"It's going to be made on the lines of the film Tamizh Padam, a spoof that took a dig at several popular Tamil films without hurting the sentiments of anybody associated with it. An official announcement regarding this project will be made soon," said a source.

Actor Srinivasan didn't divulge much information regarding the project, but said he's going to play the lead character.

"Yes, I've signed the project, but I'm not allowed to say anything more," Srinivasan said.

Interestingly, the film will be produced by Singaravelan, who was one of the distributors of Lingaa.

KS Ravikumar-directed Lingaa, which released on Rajinikanth's birthday in 2014, turned out to be a dud, resulting in heavy losses for its distributors who paid exorbitant price to buy and release the film.

Following the film's poor show at the box office, a group of distributors demanded to be compensated for the losses as the film failed miserably. Rajinikanth was forced to intervene and was even made to pay over Rs 10 crore.
