If sources are anything to go by, the plan for the audio launch of superstar Rajinikanth's Kabali has been scrapped and the music will now directly hit the stores on June 12.
"Rajinikanth sir is holidaying in the US and he won't be present in the country around the time of the launch. Hence, the makers decided to have a soft launch instead," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Santosh Narayanan has composed the music for the film, which has been directed by Pa Ranjith of Attakathi and Madras fame.
The film is based on a real-life don from Chennai, and Rajinikanth's character is modelled after him.
Also starring Radhika Apte, Kalaiyarasan Harish, Winston Chao, Dinesh, Dhansikaa and Ritwika in prominent roles, the film is produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu.
Reportedly, the much awaited movie, originally slated for July 1 release, might also be delayed for reasons not clearly known yet.
