Fans there was a buzz recently that certain portions of Lingaa were being re-shot as the film's plot resembled that of Ilayathalapathy's Kaththi. The producer of this Superstar starrer Rockline Venkatesh clarified stating
"There is no connection between the two scripts. Our script is completely different and we are not re-shooting any portion of the film again,It is a sentimental practice for those in the industry to break a pumpkin (which marks the end of a film) on their home ground. While technically all the portions of the film were completed on our recent Europe trip, we just want to shoot one small portion with Rajini sir in Chennai to mark the end of the film. We haven't really decided when we will be doing it since the portion is not significant. It will probably include some montage shots of Rajini sir walking. We will end the film by breaking the pumpkin. Right now, we are gearing up for the audio release,"
It's worth mentioning that the audio launch of the film which was initially slated to happen on 9th November was postponed was reasons unknown.
