Contrary to reports, Chinese action star Jet Li will not be featuring in superstar Rajinikanth’s Tamil gangster drama Kabali. The movie, incidentally, is on the verge of completion.
“It’s just a rumour that has been going around. The team did think of bringing an international actor on board, but it definitely wasn’t Jet Li,” said a source from the film’s unit.
Since a large portion of the film is set in Malaysia, the makers wanted to rope in a foreign actor to play the baddie. However, things didn’t fall in place, added the source.
