Tamil cinema is truly going international. Rajinikanth’s gangster film Kabali which will hit the screens on July 1, will be dubbed and released in Malay language. Malay is an Austronesian language mostly spoken in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei and Thailand.

“The film’s Malaysian distributor Malik Streams has decided to dub and release the film in Malay. On Saturday, the film’s teaser was dubbed and released in Malay, and the fans went gaga over it. It was trending on social media for several hours,” said a source from the film’s unit.
