Why should Rajni compensate Kuselan's distributors?

Rajnikanth will compensate distributors of Kuselan to the tune of 100 million rupees.
If I am not mistaken, actors rarely hand out money as compensation. Either, they act in another film produced by these distributors for free thus compensating their loss, or they just ignore it.
Rajnikanth had earlier compensated the distributors of "BABA', for which he was the producer. However, as Kuselan was produced by someone else, I find Rajni compensating the distributors of Kuselan illogical.
