Cutting Rajini down to size

Cutting Rajini down to size
A still from Lingaa
The Hindi-dubbed Lingaa has been trimmed by nearly an hour after its Tamil-Telugu versions got a lukewarm response

Rajinikanth starrer Lingaa's Hindi edition will not see as much of the Thalaiva as the Tamil and Telugu versions.

The film starring Rajinikanth, Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty released in South India on December 12, and has reportedly suffered heavy losses across Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

As a result, the makers are editing the Hindi version of the film and have reduced its run-time from a little over three hours to two hours and 28 minutes.

"The audience in the North does not worship Rajinikanth. There is no need to show him as a 'god' on screen. We have edited out all his OTT scenes," said the film's director and cowriter K S Ravikumar, who also helmed Rajinikanth's 1999 Tamil superhit Padayappa.

And it was only Rajinikanth's scenes that were left on the editing table. "Except two songs, no sequences featuring Sonakshi and Anushka were edited out," added Ravikumar. "Keeping all the commercial aspects in mind, we shortened the songs from five and a half minutes to a maximum of three minutes," he added.

Eros had purchased the film's distribution rights for a whopping Rs 200 crore and planned a worldwide release on 5,500 screens for the film. They are optimistic that the film will pick up over the holidays. "We are hoping that the holiday season will bring in the crowds," said Ravikumar.
