Some distributors of superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Darbar’ have alleged that they have faced losses due to the film and demanded compensation from Lyca Productions and the actor.
However, theatre owners and other distributors said they have earned profits from the movie. Rajini fans have alleged that the protesting distributors are working with ulterior motive to tarnish the image of the superstar and also to make money.
