The much awaited audio launch of superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming film Kabali will most likely be held in Chennai on June 11, according to sources close to the project.
"June 11 has been locked as the date for the audio launch. By then, Rajinikanth sir should be back from his holiday in the US. The makers had earlier planned on June 9 but postponed it by two days to have it on a weekend," a source from the film's unit told IANS."
Earlier, it was speculated that the event might be organized in Malaysia, given Rajinikanth's huge fan base in the country and the fact that the film is set against the backdrop of Malaysia.
But sources have rubbished such claims and have confirmed that the starry affair will be held at the YMCA grounds in the city.
Kalaipuli S Thanu, the producer of Kabali had recently requested fans to stay calm and that the official announcement regarding his film will be made soon. Looks like the team has started off by giving away the date of the film's audio launch.
Directed by Pa Ranjith, Santhosh Narayanan has composed tunes for the much awaited flick. Kabali is expected to narrate the story of a gangster, in which Rajinikanth will be seen in two different get-ups.
Meanwhile, the movie itself is expected to hit the big screen on July 1st.
"The film was earlier slated to release in June. It has now been pushed to July 1. The makers had actually planned to release the film on July 7 but have advanced the release to avoid a clash with Salman Khan's 'Sultan'," a source from the film's unit had said.
Also starring Radhika Apte, Dinesh, Dhansikaa, Kishore, Kalaiyarasan and Taiwanese actor Winston Chao in key roles, Kabali will become the first Tamil movie to be dubbed in Malay language.
