Think Music (India) is on a roll. After bagging the audio rights of Vijay's "Theri," the company is now ready to grab the rights of forthcoming biggie, "Kabali."

"#Kabali update - @thinkmusicindia likely to grab the audio rights. Audio soon," journalist Sreedhar Pillai tweeted. The talks are reportedly still on and both the parties are expected to seal the deal soon.

On the other hand, there are plans to release "Kabali" on July 1. "#Kabali music in June 1st week and movie on 1st July," Journalist Idlebrain Jeevi posted.

Meanwhile, the makers are planning to dub "Kabali" in Malay and simultaneously release with the Tamil and Telugu languages. Malik Stream Corporation has acquired the Malaysian rights of the flick.

"Kabali" is about an ageing gangster played by Rajinikanth. The story is primarily set in Malaysia. Radhika Apte and Dhansika play female leads in the flick, which has Kishore, Kalaiyarasan, Dinesh Ravi, John Vijay and others in the supporting cast.

The movie, which has been directed by Pa Ranjith and produced by Kalaippuli S Thanu, has G Murali's cinematography and Praveen KL's editing.
