The much-awaited teaser trailer for superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming crime thriller Kabali was released on Sunday morning. Within minutes of the teaser hitting YouTube, it had garnered nearly 50,000 views. The traffic which followed subsequently later forced the official page to crash. #KabaliTeaser was the top trending hashtag on Twitter in India.
Neruppu da! (Blazing fire), the teaser begins. Sporting a smart white beard and dressed in a crisp three-piece suit, the Rajni emerges with peppy background music. The actor then delivers a captivating dialogue mocking the villain. A glimpse of Radhika Apte looking very demure and traditional in a saree can also be seen.
The trailor ends with a 1970s color tone probably showing the young Kabali. The superstar walks out of a restaurant, flipping his hair back, reminding every one of the vintage Rajnikanth.
