Superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming Tamil gangster drama Kabali will now release on July 1, a source said. The release date of the much-talked about thriller has been shifted as the post production of the film is not complete. “The film was earlier slated to release in June. It has been now pushed to July 1. The makers had also planned to release on July 7 but have advanced the release to avoid a clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan,” said a source from the film’s unit.
The makers are currently busy with the post-production work and dubbing. Taiwanese actor Winston Chao joined the team on Wednesday in the city to dub his lines.
Directed by Pa Ranjith, Kabali is the story of the rise of a gangster from rags-to-riches. The film’s first teaser was unveiled on May 1 on the occasion of the International Labour Day. The 67-second teaser introduces viewers to Rajinikanth’s character Kabali, who goes on to say that he is no stereotypical gangster, in a whistle-worthy dialogue.
Also starring Radhika Apte, Dinesh, Kalaiarasan, Dhansikaa and Ritwika, the film is produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu.
