The fans of Rajinikanth are excited like never before as their icon's next movie "Kabali" gets ready for release. In fact, they are wishing that the Tamil Nadu government declares a holiday on July 22, the day Rajini's film hits the screens, to enable them to watch the movie on the first day itself. 

Many of the actor's fans have said on social media that they want to watch "Kabali" as soon it is released, but since it is a working day for colleges and offices, they may have to find some excuse to watch the multilingual film.

Some of the ardent Rajini followers have, in fact, said that they are even ready with their leave applications. Some others have created memes to prove that they will watch "Kabali" on the first day at any cost. "#KabaliLeaveLetter It would not be a surprise to C empty classrooms, mass bunk n employees finding xcuses 2 skip their duties on July 22," freelance journalist Priyanka tweeted.

Similar craze was seen earlier for Rajinikanth's movies like "Enthiran," "Lingaa" and for SS Rajamouli's magnum opus, "Baahubali."

Fans have drafted out a 'Kabali leave letter' to make things easy for all movie buffs, who are hesitating to ask their bosses for the day off:

To whom it may concern,

Please excuse____________ from work on Friday, July 22.

We understand that this absence may reduce the productivity of your workplace, but we assure you that it is for a good reason.

"Kabali" is releasing on July 22 and we want to enjoy the film on the first day. We thank you for your consideration and urge you to follow suit, take the day off, and watch the film along with the rest of the world.
