Of late, Rajinikanth has been dragged into a number of controversies. His last outing Lingaa has been mired in one controversy after another from the time of its making. The film’s distributors had made a demand that Rajinikanth pay for the losses they suffered as the film turned out to be a dud. Lingaa had another case of plagiarism against it, with two different people, Sakthivel and aspiring filmmaker KR Ravi Rathinam, claiming that Lingaa’s story was theirs.
