Also, it is heard that the film will release on April 13th.

Contrary to these ongoing reports, popular distributor Sunil Naarang of Asian Films who bagged the Telugu rights of 2.0 is asserting that the film has not been postponed. He is saying that the Lyca Productions will announce the release date very soon. Reportedly, the production house has intimated the same to Tamil media circles yesterday.

Rajinikanth’s next film not based on Haji Mastan, say makers

0

Megastar Rajinikanth’s next yet untitled Tamil project is not based on the life of Mumbai’s late underworld don Haji Mastan, makers have clarified.

In a statement, the makers said: “The film is not based on the life of Haji Mastan. It’s not even a biopic. It’s just a fictional story set in Mumbai.”

The film marks the reunion of “Kabali” director Pa. Ranjith with Rajinikanth.

It was widely reported that the 66-year-old star will play the don, who lived in Mumbai between 1926 and 1994, in the film which will roll from next week.

On Saturday, Sundar Shaekhar, who claims to be the son of Haji Mastan, sent a legal notice to Rajinikanth, requesting him to not portray his father as a “smuggler and don”.

“You are depicting my godfather and a well-known national political leader as a ‘smuggler and underworld don’, which are highly unacceptable and I strongly oppose such misrepresentation of my godfather,” Sundar said in the notice.

To be produced by Dhanush, the film will have music by Santhosh Narayanan.

The makers are currently recreating the popular Dharavi slum in the city.

“On a budget close to Rs 5 crore, Dharavi set is currently being constructed in Chennai and predominant portion of the film will be shot there,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.

Gaga over Kabali and Pokeman Go: ‘Connectivity’ is the key!

0

Right now, only two things seem to matter anymore to humankind- Pokemon Go and Kabali. Be it tea break topics in the office, discussions among friends and coverage in the media, it is unprecedented and mind-boggling.

Pokemon Go with over 30 million downloads and Rajini-starred Kabali with fans lining up to get their hands on the tickets even before the release not just in India but across the world are talk of the town, na planet. Apart from wide popularity, these two PHENOMENONS have one more thing in common: sense of belonging!

The success of Kabali can be attributed to the lead actor, Rajinikanth but what is the invisible hand which is working apart from hard work and talent? A feeling, the sense of “belonging” and a sense of “ours.” A 65-year-old South Indian actor without six packs could mesmerize people. Why? He could strike a right chord with middle class and the stratas below it.

What touches ones heart is the inspiring story behind Thalaiva, a bus conductor who rose to unreachable heights with sheer dedication and perseverance. The titillating mannerisms and punch dialogues brought the start close to the hearts of the fans and audience accepting him as “our” star. Precisely because of this, we take pride in ourselves when we see or hear –“ Rajinikanth.” Having failed in recent attempts, Rajni needs a blockbuster and we can’t fail ‘our’ actor to fail at this critical juncture. It is ‘our’ responsibility to make sure our actor succeeds. The psyche is made to give him a hit, that’s it. You may not like Kabali till the end but you can’t loath our guy as he had already occupied a soft corner in our minds and hearts.

Come to think about it, it could be same with Pokemon Go, which is driving people crazy with virtual gaming. Launched in 1995 as a game before being created as a cartoon show, it was a huge hit among kids, thanks to its creative concepts and feel good characters. Growing up fascinated by the cartoons and games of Pokemon, Niantic inc. could spark the connection again with the use of technology and innovation at a right time. This time, the former kids, men and women, could be carried away by the sense of same belonging.

On the one hand Kabali and the other Pokeman could surely “connect” themselves properly to the new age customers in their own ways. Both of them wowed the world and shared fun for time being. Till a new phenomenon sweeps them aside, a generation would relish the phenomenon.

If a bank has issued credit cards with still from the film, a well-known gold loan company has minted silver coins with Rajini’s face on it! And then there was Air Asia which had a series of Kabali-themed flights which marked the first time a south Indian film is advertised on a plane. And guess what the design for the flight apparently took a month to finalise!

Moreover, Airtel has also been collaborated with this promotional activity and has planned special recharge packages one of them which is unlimited 2G internet. Wait, we have more! PVR Cinemas, the official partner of Kabali has offered to sell merchandise of the film at the cinema halls and there will be a lot of offers on ticket pricings as well.

But it’s not just branding going on, fans have been going gaga and there ample merchandise like T-shirts, key chains, merchandise, mobile phone covers and what not. Look at these pictures we have collected just for you. A sample of the Kabali mania:
