Kabali, the Rajinikanth starrer is all set to hit the theatres worldwide, on 22nd July, Friday. Interestingly, it is Mohanlal, who is distributing Kabali in the releasing centres all over Kerala.
The Malayali audiences are extremely excited to know that Mohanlal is collaborating with a Rajinikanth movie, as a distributor. But, this news reminds us of another incident that happened during the release of his 2009 movie, Ividam Swargamanu.
Here we present the best 15 posters of Kabali.... Have a look...
When the Roshan Andrews movie was about to hit the theatres, Mohanlal and his business partner Antony Perumbavoor had conducted a press meet, against the wide Kerala release of Vijay starrer Vettaikkaran, which was released in 75 theatres, then.
The duo was strictly against wide releases of the other-language movies in Kerala, as some highly anticipated Malayalam releases were struggling without releasing centres. Mohanlal, even suggested that such releases should be regulated.
Now, the actor seems to have forgotten the whole incident and his statement, as Kabali is hitting around 306 screens in Kerala, tomorrow. He bagged the Kerala distribution rights for his banner MaxLab and Antony Perumbavoor's Aashirvad Cinemas for 7.5 Crores.
Sadly, this will surely affect the box office performances of the Eid releases, including the Mammootty starrer Kasaba, Anuraga Karikkinvellam, and Karinkunnam Sixes, which are still performing well at the Kerala box office.
Reportedly, most of the theatres have stopped screening the Eid releases for Kabali. Isn't Mohanlal showing double standards by contradicting the statement he has made earlier? Hit the comment box to share your views....
