Citing delay in the post-production works, a source has revealed that the film will now have its worldwide theatrical release on July 15. Having said that, there are no official confirmation yet from the makers of Kabali.
Meanwhile, actor Kishore, who plays one of the villains in the much awaited flick, has opened up about the film and his character in it, according to a report from The Hindu.
"'Kabali' is about the Malaysian underworld, the socio-political and economic history of Malaysia is a key part of the setting," he has said.
Speaking about his character in the Rajinikanth-starrer, the Polladhavan actor has said, "I am a typical villain, wearing fat golden chains and bracelets. There is nothing much to speak about my character. I shot for over 30 days in Chennai and Malaysia."
"Radhika is a talented actor and a thorough professional. The respect she has for language, which is a basic requirement for portraying a character, is simply amazing," he has said, when asked about Radhika Apte, who plays the female lead in the movie.
About the film's storyline, Praveen KL, who has edited Kabali, had said the movie is a fast paced thriller on the lines of "race against time" kind of an entertainer.
"Rajini sir is working with new age director like Pa Ranjith for the first time. The story of 'Kabali' is something new even for Rajini sir. The biggest challenge for me as editor was to present the superstar within the image that his fans love and at the same time making it look different and staying true to the script of director Ranjith," he had said to Sreedhar Pillai in an interview for India Glitz.
