Superstar's Lingaa audio launched and Trailer released [+Trailer Talk]
On Sunday, Lingaa’s audio was released in the presence of Rajinikanth, director, K.S. Ravi Kumar, female leads Anushka Shetty and Sonakshi...
Oscar winner, A.R. Rahman, who has composed the tunes, was not present. Instead, a video where he spoke about the film was screened for the fans.
With Lingaa, actor Rajinikanth will mark his return to the big screen after a gap of four years since the release of Enthiran. Lingaa will also be Rajinikanth’s first live action film after recovering from the serious illness which threatened to end his career three years ago.
Explaining the delay after Enthiran, he said, “After I recovered, I wanted to announce another film only after the release of Kochadaiiyaan. It was a film that was not getting released and I had to make sure it got a release,” he said.
Director K.S. Ravi Kumar said that the entire crew worked without a break for six months from May.
“We all had to work on a tight schedule and clear deadlines without a break. Even A.R. Rahman, who was working on multiple projects, took it up as a challenge to deliver the tunes on a deadline. Finishing a film of this magnitude in such a short span of time is impossible,” he said.
Mr. Rajinikanth added, “We wanted to prove to the industry that a period film could be finished in such a short span of time. This was possible only because of K.S. Ravi Kumar.”
