The movie that is one of the biggest eye-catchers of 2016 is ‘Kabali’. With the South Sensation Rajnikanth, the movie is showing no sign not to be in thenews for some or the other reasons. From its late release to its promotion in Singapore, with a special flight for the fans and then with the news of its leak, the list is endless. Now there is another bad news! The introductory scene of the movie has been leaked! The news is already making buzz and fans are giving reactions. According to few the leak cannot damage the business of a ‘Rajnikanth Movie’. For some, it will decrease the intensity of the audience. Pahlaj Nihalani, the Chief Censor seemed to think that the situation is alarming: “Now, the pirates have not spared Rajinikanth either.”
Though the authenticity of the scene is not revealed yet, a Facebook page called Tamil Rockers has revealed it on Wednesday. A few days back we reported that Kabali was illegally available on the Dark Web, despite a Madras High Court order of banning the service providers and websites from pirating the film. But the reports were dismissed by the producer of Kabali, Kalaipuli S Thanu who claimed it to be a rumor. Now in a unique way Kabali is promoting anti-piracy. According to the news, a Kabali-themed flash mob showed an anti-piracy message at a Chennai mall last Sunday.
The news of leak and piracy is the recent issue of Indian film industry. From Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Udta Punjab’, to ‘Great Grand Masti’, ‘Sultan’ and now ‘Kabali’ none of the movies are being spared from the curse. This is high time that the problem should be fixed or else situation will be worse than ever.
Rajinikanth plays a Malaysia-based mafia boss in Kabali and he will be seen asboth the younger and older versions of the character. Directed by Pa Ranjith, the film also stars Radhika Apte and Hong Kong actor Winston Chao. Kabali will be released worldwide on Friday July 22, 2016 in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi. Many cinemas in Bengaluru and Chennai opened bookings last weekend, and shows were sold out immediately. The film also screens in 1,000 cinemas in North India and 400 theatres in theUSA.
