Rajinikanth’s Kabali to release on July 1

Superstar Rajinikanth‘s upcoming Tamil film Kabali will release on July 1, a source said.

“The film was earlier slated to release in June. It has now been pushed to July 1. The makers had also planned to release the film on July 7 but have advanced the release to avoid a clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan,” a source from the film’s unit said.

Directed by Pa. Ranjith, Kabali is the story of the rise of a gangster from rags to riches.

The makers are currently busy with the post-production work and dubbing. Taiwanese actor Winston Chao joined the team on Wednesday in the city to dub his lines.

Also starring Radhika Apte, Dinesh, Kalaiarasan, Dhansikaa and Ritwika, Kabali has been produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu.
