Rajinikanth’s last outing, Lingaa, may not have fared well on the box office but the buzz around his upcoming gangster film Kabali is quite high. A new poster of the film was shared by its director Pa Ranjith on social media on Saturday. The poster shows Rajinikanth emerging from a hole (or some kind of a pit) even as hundreds of people cling on to him. The hole is ringed by images of skyscrapers with one resembling the Petronas Towers, a reference to Malaysia, where part of the film has been being shot.
