The Wynnsong screening will some of the promotional material for film, including a life-size banner of Rajinikanth and promotional T-shirts.

The step was taken after the firms realised that their employees were planning to go on mass leave to watch the gangster-drama, reports Hindustan Times. The movie even before its release is making headlines for its records. Now, it is being reported that Rajinikanth's upcoming movie "Kabali" is also available online for download.


Tickets are sold at exorbitant prices, which somewhere has extended to 5times the normal rate. It may be noted that "Kabali" stars Radhika Apte and Dhanshika as the female leads, and is produced by S Thanu.

- The film will be released in Singapore and Indonesia as it was shot there mostly and huge Tamil populations live in these two nations. Kabali stars the 65-year-old actor as a Malayasia-based don named Kabali or Kabaleeshwaran. A trade analyst in Chennai said, "Kabali will create history at the box-office".

Rajinikanth, the name alone is the reason for this unprecedented hype and hoopla around Kabali. But being the third and the most talked about series, this film still has to face a tough competition in India.
