Speaking at the success meet, Superstar Rajinikanth said, “I was deeply saddened by seeing the people whose lives have been devastated due to Hudhud cyclone. I was supposed to participate in Memu Saitham program which was arranged to raise funds for Hudhud-affected but due to some important works I didn’t participated. I’m sorry for that. I’ll do my best for the victims of cyclone as soon as possible. ‘Kochadaiyaan’ is a different and animated movie. ‘Linga’ is a straight film. We have completed the film within 6 months and it is not a simple thing. The story is on a 1947 backdrop and it deals with Dam. The film is made with huge sets, train fights, horses and elephants and it has 60 t0 70 scenes and over 1000 members have involved in almost 40 scenes. Top technicians like KS Ravikumar, Venkatesh and Rathnavel and some others have worked for the film. Therefore, we are able to complete the huge film within 6 months. I feel it as a privilege to act in this. The hardest thing is to do duets with Anushka Shetty and Sonakshi Sinha. Because, Sonakshi Sinha grown up along with my children. So, I felt some nervous. I have watched ‘Baahubali’. Rajamouli is doing very hard work. He will become India’s No.1 director. I would love to do a film under his direction if I get an opportunity. Jagapathi Babu is a best person in film industry. I would love to continue our friendship lifelong. I’m confident that the Telugu audience will encourage me by making the film a big hit like the Tamil audience.”
Addressing the gathering, director KS Ravikumar said, “It was an honour to get a chance to work with Superstar Rajinikanth. This is the first film in Rajinikanth’s career which is being released on his birthday. We feel it as a birthday gift to him. It is not an easy thing to complete a big film within 6 months. But, we did it within the estimated time with the support of all artists and technicians. I’m confident that the Telugu audience will make the film a big success.”
Rockline Venkatesh said, “’Linga’ is my dream project. I feel it as a privilege to do this film. When we have chosen the suitable artists for the characters, they too have given green signal for the project. We did very hard work for the film. Rajinikanth has fulfilled my dream. I’m very happy with the success of audio.”
On this occasion, Sonakshi Sinha said, “It was an honour to share screen space with a living legend Rajinikanth. It feels amazing. I’m glad that I got the chance to act with him in my first South Indian film. He is a wonderful human being, simple and humble nature and truly a rare gem of a person. I will achieve my success if I reach even half of his success. Anushka is a sweet girl. KS Ravikumar and Rathnavelu and each and every technician have supported me.”
Speaking at the success meet, Anushka said, “We worked together as a family. KS Ravikumar is a wonderful director. We have completed the film within the estimated time. Acting alongside with Superstar Rajinikanth is a wonderful experience and is unforgettable. Rathnavel has picturized each and every scene wonderfully. My dream to do a film under K Viswanath’s direction was fulfilled with this film. We can learn a lot from Rajinikanth everyday while working with him. I’m thankful to everyone who supported me.”
All others too spoke at the success meet and wished for the success of the film.
