The makers of "Kabali" are leaving no stone unturned to give their film a wide release across the world. They are planning to simultaneously release the movie in four languages – Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malai. Hence, the forthcoming flick might be delayed.

"Kabali" was supposed to release on July 1, but it was delayed as the makers planned to simultaneously release the film in Hindi and Malai. The film was rescheduled for July 15. But now, it seems like the plans are going for a change again.

Some unconfirmed reports on social media say that the movie might be pushed to August. However, the makers are yet to formally announce the date and they are expected to open up only after "Kabali" gets cleared by the censor board.

Journalist Sreedhar Pillai wrote, "#Kabali Update - Dubbing in 4 languages - Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malai in the final stages. Censor soon. [sic]"

On the other hand, the makers are promoting the movie like never before for a Rajinikanth film. From creating an app on the movie to tying up with an airlines, they are putting in best efforts to generate huge buzz around "Kabali."

Meanwhile, producer Kalaippuli S Thanu has reportedly sold the theatrical rights of "Kabali" to Jazz Cinemas. "#jazzcinemas to release #Kabali in tamilnadu. Special shows guaranteed then! ;)" online movie critic Prashanth revealed on his Twitter account. It is reported that the makers sealed the deal after a lot of negotiations.

The overseas distribution rights and the rights of many other key centres, including Karnataka, have been already sold. The expected pre-release business of the movie is above Rs. 200 crore.

"Kabali" is written and directed by Pa Ranjith. Radhika Apte, Dhansika, Kishore and many others are in the cast.
