Superstar Rajnikanth’s forthcoming film ‘Lingaa’ is scheduled for release this December. As per the Chennai sources, writer cum director K S Ravikumar is making efforts to complete the film before December so that the film can be planned for December 12, 2014 release marking the actor’s birthday.
‘Lingaa’ is the third collaboration of Rajnikanth and KS Ravikumar, the first being the blockbuster ‘Muthu’ in 1995 and the second being another sensational blockbuster ‘Padayappa’ in 1999.
