Kabali, the ambitious new Tamil film starring superstar Rajinikanth, which is slated to hit the screens worldwide on July 22, will release in 400 screens in the US. Special premieres have been planned for a day earlier.
In the US, distribution company CineGalaxy, which had released Theri and 24 earlier this year, will release Kabali. “It will be the biggest release for a Rajinikanth-starrer in the US. The Tamil as well as Telugu version of the film will release in 400 screens,” said Madhu Garlapati of CineGalaxy.
According to Madhu, there's unprecedented pre-release buzz for the film. “We opened bookings on Tuesday and in less than two hours tickets were sold out at Towne 3 cinemas, San Jose. The tickets for premieres are priced at $25, and there's huge demand for tickets,” she said.
Directed by Pa. Ranjith, the film also stars Radhika Apte, Kishore, Kalaiarasan, Dinesh, Dhansikaa and Taiwanese actor Winston Chao.
