Will it be 'Lingaa' vs 'PK' at the box-office?

Rajinikanth's KS Ravikumar directed Lingaa is being planned as a Superstar birthday special on December 12. The producer of the film Rockline Venkatesh is very keen that the film releases for Rajini’s birthday in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi simultaneously worldwide.

But now a spanner has been thrown in to his carefully laid out plan with  Aamir Khan's PK gearing up for a worldwide release on December 19.  The first look poster of Rajkumar Hirani directed PK has Aamir in the nude with a strategically placed vintage boombox, has created a huge buzz around it.

Aamir Khan's PK will be aggressively marketed by its producers Vidhu Vinod Chopra and UTV and will release in 3500 screens worldwide. This will give a window of only one week to Rajinikanth's Lingaa if it releases on December 12 .

Lingaa will find it difficult to get screens in North India and overseas market, key to big opening for a Rajinikanth film. The trade is eagerly looking forward to Lingaa release.
