Never mind the delay in the release of the upcoming Rajinikanth film Kabali. The buzz around the film only grows with every passing day. The low-cost carrier AirAsia India has unveiled its new rebranded aircraft featuring a livery dedicated to Kabali and Rajini fans. AirAsia is the official airline partner for Kabali.
“AirAsia India unveiled its all new rebranded aircraft, with a livery dedicated to the most-awaited movie of the year Kabali,” said AirAsia in a statement. According to the company, this special aircraft is a mark of respect to the Thalaiva for his contribution to Indian cinema.
AirAsia said that parts of the aircraft have been painted and pasted with the livery, bearing image of the 65-year-old actor from the movie. Reportedly, the planes from this low fare airline were used in a few scenes of Kabali.
