Chennai, Aug 18 (IANS) Tamil superstar Rajnikant will compensate distributors of his film 'Kuselan', which did not fare well at the box office, to the tune of Rs.100 million, sources close to the actor said.

A spokesman for the distribution company Pyramid Saimira, which is showing the film across Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, said the movie had so far collected Rs.210 million. He was confident of 'Kuselan' covering the costs of Rs.600 million before being taken off theatres.

The company, however, was noncommittal about accepting the compensation.

While the star did not charge any fee from the Tamil producer and his mentor K. Balachander, the Telugu version's producers had paid Rajnikant a fee of Rs.100 million.

The movie icon had Friday recommended several cuts to improve the collections of the movie.

The matinee idol had extended a similar courtesy after one of his earlier films 'Baba' ran into huge losses.
