Kabali is all set for release in the Malaysia, where the fan count for Rajini is humongous. Thus the producers are hoping for excellent results, playing a large part in Malaysia. After all, Rajinikanth plays the role of Malaysian Don.
The budget for “Kabali” is much lower when compared with the earning it has made till now. The budget account for Rs 75 crore for the flick, out of which Rs 50-60 crores was the fees of the lead artist alone. Thus the movie is quite cheaply directed, involving some young technicians and artist.
As far as locations are concerned, most of the shooting was done at sets in Chennai. The only shoots done in Malaysia were subject to expense. Even the luxurious cars, used in the movie were given by the rich Malaysian Tamil fans of Rajinikanth for free.
