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. The film is based on a real-life don from Chennai, and Rajinikanth’s character is modelled after him. Also starring Radhika Apte, Kalaiarasan, Winston Chao, Dinesh, Dhansikaa and Ritwika, the film is produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu. Reportedly, the film originally slated for July 1 release, might also be delayed for reasons not clearly known yet.
Rajinikanth’s Kabali is the biggest release of Kollywood this year. It has become even more popular now after the teaser went crazy viral on YouTube. It went on to become the most watched Indian film teaser of all time. So naturally after such phenomenal success, everybody was expecting the audio and trailer launch of the film to be larger than life. But looks like that will not happen.
This indeed comes as a huge blow for all the fans of the Superstar who were expecting a spectacle. But then again, this is Rajinikanth we are talking about and he is all about setting his own trends.
