What an achievement for the Superstar's film!
When it comes to setting new trends and breaking new records, no one does it better than Superstar Rajinikanth. It has already become the most watched Indian movie teaser of all time by beating Salman Khan's Sultan by some margin. Now, the gangster flick is in the news again thanks to a innovative decision by the makers.
Superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming Tamil gangster drama Kabali, which is slated for theatrical release 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," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
"Kabali is said to be the first Indian film to be dubbed in Malay," he added. Besides Malaysia, Malik Streams will also release "Kabali" in Indonesia and Singapore. Directed by Pa. Ranjith, the film revolves around the rags-to-riches story of Kabali, a character modeled after a real-life, Chennai-based gangster. The film also features Radhika Apte, Kalaiarasan, Dinesh, Kishore, Dhansikaa and Ritwika.
The release date of the Pa Ranjith film has already been confirmed as July 1. As for the audio launch, the date has been tentatively set as May 30, which could postpone to first week of June.
