If expectations from Rajinikanth-starrer Kabali are high, then the response to its first teaser proves it. The teaser, that released on Sunday, has garnered over 5 million views, making it the highest for a south Indian film.
The 67-second teaser introduces viewers to Rajinikanth’s character Kabali, and he goes on to say he’s no stereotypical gangster, in a whistle-worthy dialogue. Sporting John Lennon glasses and three-piece suit, the 65-year old is referred to as fire.
Towards the end of teaser, there’s a shot of Rajinikanth from the 1970s, where he’s seen walking out of a restaurant, flipping his hair back in the most inimitable fashion.
Rajinikanth plays an ageing don in the film, which is directed by Pa Ranjith, and it also stars Radhika Apte, Kalaiarasan, Dinesh and Ritwika.
