With just 4 days to go for its worldwide theatrical release, the Pa Ranjith directorial is well on its way to become one of the highest opening grossers in India, for the promotions have been rather impressive.
Cashing in on Rajinikanth's popularity in the Garden City, distributors, theatre owners and even politicians have so far used the 'Kabali craze' for their own benefits. It was a matter of time before restaurants and hotels did something similar.
In Chennai, GRT Hotels in T Nagar will present its customers with a special degustation menu based on Rajinikanth's films.
"We have picked some of the best Rajini movies, starting with 'Apoorva Raagangal'. We have taken each movie name and creatively interpreted it into our food," Vikram Cotah, COO, GRT Hotels told Times of India.
To give you an idea of what's in store at the restaurant, one of Rajini's classics Aadu Puli Attam has inspired a dish made of goat trotters and tiger prawns.
"The literal translation of 'aadu' means goat, 'puli' is tiger and 'attam' is play; so we have a dish that is a play between tiger prawns and goat paya, which is served with ragi idiappam," Cotah, a self-confessed fan of Rajinikanth has said.
Meanwhile, the star actor's religious visits in the US has come to light as photographs of him along with his daughter Aishwarya R Dhanush visiting the 'Satchidananda Ashram' has been made available online.
These newly released pictures have put to rest rumours regarding Rajinikanth's health. The Enthiran actor is expected to return from the US, some time soon.
