Director Pa Ranjith has confirmed that Kabali will be the title of his upcoming film with actor Rajinikanth. ‘Kaali’ and ‘Kannabiran’ were the other titles in contention, according to social media speculation. A photoshoot for the movie will most likely be held on August 21. The filmmakers are also planning to release the first look poster before the shooting begins.

Although reports had suggested that shooting would commence tomorrow in Malaysia, it seems unlikely, as Rajinikanth met actors Vishal, Nasser, Karthi, Karunas, and Ponvannan in Chennai today, to discuss the Nadigar Sangam elections.
Kabali is tipped to be a gangster film, with Rajinikanth as an aged don named Kabaleeshwaran. The cast includes Radhika Apte, Dhansika, Kalaiarasan, and Attakathi Dinesh. Kabali will have music composed by Santhosh Narayanan.
