Rajinikanth stars as a slum lord turned gangster in Kaala.

In less than 24 hours, Rajinikanth’s ambitious new film Kaala directed by Pa Ranjith will hit the big screen. For his fans, the release of Rajinikanth film is nothing short of a mega festival. Much happens in the run-up to a Rajinikanth film release.

Cinema halls across South Indian states are in different states of preparedness for Kaala frenzy to kick in.

An IT company in Kerala has declared a holiday for its employees. Telious Technology issued a letter to its employees on June 4, which read: “We are happy to announce a glad news to all of you. As a token of great honor to super star Rajinikanth and as per everyone’s request, our company is granting a holiday on June 7th. this is for your convenience to watch Kaala on release date itself.”

However, this is not the first time that companies have declared a holiday at the release of a Rajinikanth film. In 2016 too, just before the release of Rajinikanth’s Kabali, two companies—one in Bengaluru and another in Chennai—declared holidays. These were Bangalore-based Opus Waterproofing and Chennai-based Fyndus India Pvt Ltd.

Not just that, the craze for Rajinikanth film being what it is in Japan, young Japanese fans have reached Chennai to watch and enjoy a Rajinikanth film in its complete glory. Fans Yasuda and Satsuki have travelled all the way from Japan to Chennai to enjoy Kaala.

The Wire Room in Chennai, meanwhile, has prepared a brand new drink. Called Kaala drink (Magizchi), the drink has Rajinikanth’s face in it.

A micro artist named Thomas has sculpted Rajinikanth’s look from Kaala on a pencil point. Sharing the picture, Wunderbar Films, the maker of Kaala, wrote: “#ThomasArtWorld meets #KAALA A big shoutout to this amazing micro artist, Thomas! Kuddos to your effort!! #2DAYSTOKAALA #KaalaFromJune7th #Kaala.”

One of the film’s actors, Huma Qureshi too shared her Kaala moment-she posted a video of Kaala-printed coffee mugs. She wrote: “Loving my #Kaala coffee mugs ... Pour hot coffee or water ... Wait for it ... who wants one.”
