According to reports, Rajnikanth has offered compensation of Rs 10 Crores to the distributors of the film Kuselan, which is faring poorly at the box office.
Pyramid Saimira, which has distributed the film in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, is said to have collected around Rs.20 Crores. The film Kuselan ( Kathanayakudu in Telugu) was made at a total cost of Rs 60 Crores.
Rajinikanth did not charge any fee from the Tamil producer and his mentor K. Balachander. However, Aswini Dutt, the Telugu version’s producer paid Rajnikanth a fee of Rs.10 Crores.
A few years ago, the film Baba bombed at the box office. Then also Rajinikanth compensated the losses of the distributors of that film.
