Friday 26th June 2015 07:18 EDT

Rajnikanth starrer 'Lingaa' has been in the news for all the wrong reasons, and now they will be put together into a spoof, featuring actor 'Powerstar' Srinivasan in the lead. “It's going to be made on the lines of the film 'Tamizh Padam', a spoof that took a dig at several popular Tamil films without hurting the sentiments of anybody associated with it. An official announcement regarding this project will be made soon,” a source reported.

The film will be produced by Singaravelan, one of the directors of 'Lingaa'. Srinivasan confirmed the reports saying, “Yes, I've signed the project, but I'm not allowed to say anything more.”

Directed by K S Ravikumar, 'Lingaa', released on Rajnikanth's birthday last year, suffered a huge loss resulting in heavy losses for its distributors who later demanded to be compensated. The actor was forced to intervene and was even made to pay over Rs 100 million.
