Rajnikanth was last seen in Lingaa and took a break after that. Lingaa did not do well on the box office and so Rajnikanth was very careful for choosing the script. Rajnikanth is all set to star in his 159th movie which will be a Tamil drama named 'Kabali'.
Rajnikanth is playing the role of a gangster for which he is going to sport a new look. The superstar is reportedly said to sport a salt and pepper look along with a thick white
beard. Rajnikanth had participated in the photo shoot of the film last week in which he was spotted in that look.
The story of the movie is based on a Chennai based don. The movie will be directed by Pa. Ranjith and will have Radhika Apte starring opposite Rajnikanth. After completing her bollywood work commitments Radhika will only concentrate on Kabali.
The makers are planning to release the first look of the film on September 17, the day on which the film will go on floors in Malaysia.
The movie also stars Prakash Raj, Gajaraj, Dhansika and Kalaiarasan and music will be given by Santosh Narayanan. Photography for the film began on 21 August 2015 in AVM Studios in Chennai. The shooting of the film which will take place in Malaysia and will later be continued in Bangkok and Hong Kong.
