Looks like the much awaited film is all set to storm into theatres all over the world on 22nd July, as reported earlier. What else could've triggered theatre owners in Malaysia to organize the world premiere of Kabali on 21st July?
Yes, superstar Rajinikanth's Kabali will be premiered at a popular cinema hall in Malaysia. It is said that the Pa Ranjith directorial will be screened at 9 PM on 21st July.
So now, it can be safely said that Kabali will release worldwide on 22nd July. Having said that, as of now, the film is not yet certified and producer Thanu is yet to announce its official release date.
Meanwhile, in one of his latest interviews, Pa Ranjith has said that this film will showcase Rajinikanth only as an actor, something that he believes was last achieved in Mullum Malarum, directed by J Mahendran.
"After 'Mullum Malarum', this ('Kabali') is the film where you can see the best of Rajinikanth, acting wise," the Madras film-maker said.
Adding that the Lingaa actor will be seen as a citizen of Malaysia in the film, Ranjith went on to say that the movie is about the rise of an individual from a group of Indians, who were sent to Malaysia to work in the rubber industry.
"Everybody can relate to the story of 'Kabali', but it is not a story based on real life incidents", the young director confirmed.
Ranjith, who was supposed to work with Suriya before Kabali happened, will direct the Ghajini star in his next.
"Am done with the script. Shooting will begin once 'Kabali' hits the screen. The film will have its share of heroism," Pa Ranjith revealed.
