Upcoming Tamil gangster thriller "Kabali" is leaving no stones unturned as the Rajinikanth-starrer hits headlines almost everyday. Helmed by Pa. Ranjith, the movie is one of the most anticipated projects of the year of the superstar, who enjoys a huge fan following throughout the world.

The latest we hear is that the Puducherry government has offered free tickets to residents in Sellipet panchayat if they construct a toilet in their house. The government announced the scheme after a survey by the district rural development agency found out that almost 447 households out of 772 do not have a toilet in the village.

"Collector in #pondicherry is using gift of tickets of this film as incentive for use of Public Services!Its Working!," Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi tweeted on June 30. She has also requested Rajinikanth to become the brand ambassador of the Swachh Bharat Scheme in the union territory. "When Rajni Kant Super star is Ambassador for Swatchh and #prosperouspuducherry it will include changing old habits!," the retired IPS officer wrote on the micro-blogging site.

Meanwhile, the photos of an Air Asia India flight with the posters of the movie, have started doing the rounds on social media. The airline carrier, which is the official airline partner of "Kabali," has devoted a special aircraft that will be flying to New Delhi, Bengaluru, Goa, Chandigarh, Pune, Jaipur, Guwahati, Imphal, Vizag and Kochi. They have also planned to arrange trips from Bengaluru for Rajinikanth fans, who want to watch its first-day-first-show in Chennai.

Rajinikanth plays the role of a don in Malaysia in "Kabali," which stars Radhika Apte, Dinesh, Kishore, Dhansikaa, Kalaiarasan, Dinesh and Taiwanese actor Winston Chao in key roles. "Kabali," which was earlier scheduled to be released on July 15, is likely to be postponed by two weeks. The big-budget Rajinikanth-starrer, produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, is also expected to hit more than 3,000 screens worldwide. Meanwhile, superstar Mohanlal has bagged the theatrical rights of the gangster film in Kerala for an approximate amount of Rs. 7.5 crore.
