More on Vijay and Rajinikanth
Vijay’s massive Fan base the reason for this huge numbers.
Vijay has a lot of fans in Kerala. Rajinikanth’s box office pull has been under scrutiny since the disastrous performances of Lingaa and Kochadaiiyaan. Kabali certainly looks to be different, as the film is directed by Pa Ranjith, who previously made critically acclaimed Madras and Attakathi. Even the released posters of the film and Rajnikanth’s look in the film has been appreciated! However, it was not enough for the distributors to give it a higher price than Vijay’s action thriller.
