The second teaser of "Kabali" has turned out to be a hit on YouTube. The video of Rajinikanth's forthcoming Tamil movie was unveiled on June 16.

The teaser, which was released following the massive success of the "Kabali" audio, has got over 62 lakh hits until now. The clip has gathered above 98,000 likes and is expected to reach the 1-lakh mark shortly.

The teaser is a promo of the "Neruppu Da" song. Rajinikanth appears in stylish forms and mouths powerful one-liners in the 35-second video. Radhika Apte and Dhansika, who are reportedly playing the roles of Rajini's wife and gangster daughter, in the upcoming movie, are part of the promo.

The video got close to 28 lakh hits on YouTube in 36 hours after its release.

It may be recalled that the first teaser of "Kabali" had also got record-breaking hits and likes. The clip, which was released on May 1, has been viewed over 2.3 crore times on YouTube with 4.37 lakh likes till date.

Meanwhile, the stage is set for the audio launch of the Telugu version of "Kabali." As per reports, it will be unveiled in Hyderabad on Sunday, June 26. But Rajinikanth is expected to give the event a miss as the superstar is yet to return to the country from his holiday in the U.S.

"Kabali" is an action-thriller written and directed by Pa Ranjith, who had directed two films — "Attakathi" and "Madras" — earlier. The Kalaippuli S Dhanu-produced film has Radhika Apte as the female lead. Dhansika, Kishore, Kalaiyarasan and many others are in supporting roles.

The movie has been shot simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu. The film, with its multiple versions, will be released worldwide on July 15.
