Super Star’s Kabali fever has not only hit India, it has also hit Malaysia. Rajinikanth, who plays a gangster Kabaliswaran aka Kabali in the film, has a shot at redemption after spending 25 years in prison. The film is the story of an ageing don who fights for Tamils in Malaysia.
Pa Ranjith has taken bits and pieces of the actual history of Malaysian Tamil people and incorporated them into his characters and story.
While the climax in Malaysia has been changed to that of India’s, it says ‘Kabali surrenders himself to the police after killing the villain.
According to PTI, the climax was changed following Film Censorship Board of Malaysia’s request to the makers for alterations in the movie, so that the viewers continue respecting the law.
Kabali was released on July 22. Though the film has received mixed reviews from audiences and critics alike, it has shattered all Indian film records worldwide by collecting more than Rs 100 crore on Day 1.
The superstar returned to Chennai on Sunday night after spending over a month in the US and will take a week to get back into the groove before resuming work on Shankar’s magnum opus, 2.o.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth will also arrange a special screening of Kabali for Kamal Haasan, who is still recovering from a leg fracture and is in hospital.
