Well, after all the hype and fanfare, it’s finally here! AirAsia’s ‘Kabali’ flight — which marks a historic moment for Indian cinema, as it is the first time an airline has dedicated an aircraft to a film!
Such a phenomenon was only witnessed earlier when Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit movie series released. The plane will also be flying across the AirAsia India network of cities such as Bengaluru, New Delhi, Goa, Pune, Chandigarh,Vizag, Kochi and so on. Apparently, a few AirAsia planes have also been used in the film, and fans have already bought out tickets to the special flight that will fly from Bengaluru to Chennai on the first day of the movie, giving audiences the total Kabali experience.
And here’s something to whet fans’ appetites further — Air Asia, as part of their promotional package named ‘Fly Like A Superstar’, is also introducing a ‘Kabali vegetarian biryani’ on all their flights from July 1 onwards! What more could a fan want, eh?
Mohanlal buys Kabali rights in Kerala:
In another exciting announcement, the Malayalam superstar has bagged the distribution rights for the Rajini-starrer in his home state — for a whopping 8.5 crore, the highest amount paid for a non-Malayalam film in Kerala.
According to reports, Mohanlal’s Maxlab will release the flick along with Antony Perumbavoor’s Aashirvad Cinemas. A tweet by the latter has revealed that the release date is set as July 22 now! One can only hope no further delays occur.
