Rajinikanth's "Lingaa" is generating a huge buzz and the latest development is that even Bollywood stars are ready to watch the superstar's flick. Yes, biggies Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan will watch the film, suggest reports.

There are speculations that director KS Ravikumar has planned a special screening of "Lingaa" for the Bollywood celebrities, prominent names in the guest list are Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.

As we all know, the three big names of Bollywood have shared a good relationship with Rajinikanth for years now and so this does not come as a surprise. We have to note that it is not the Tamil version but the Hindi version that they will be watching in Mumbai, probably next week.

The move is expected to boost the prospects of the film at the box office, as the presence of Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan will give good publicity to "Lingaa." 

We should note that this is not the first time where Shah Rukh Khan will be turning up for an event related to Rajinikanth's films. Earlier, he had launched Rajini's "Kochadaiiyaan" audio in Chennai. Their friendship has grown after the superstar worked with King Khan in a small role in Hindi film "Ra.One".

The latest development will also help the film's chances in selling the satellite rights for a good price, say traders.
