Chennai: If sources are anything to go by, the plan for the audio launch of superstar Rajinikanth's "Kabali" has been scrapped and the music will now directly hit the stores on June 12.
"Rajinikanth sir is holidaying in the US and he won't be present in the country around the time of the launch. Hence, the makers decided to have a soft launch instead," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Santosh Narayanan has composed the music for the film, which has been directed by Pa. Ranjith.
The film is based on a real-life don from Chennai, and Rajinikanth's character is modelled after him.
Also starring Radhika Apte, Kalaiarasan, Winston Chao, Dinesh, Dhansikaa and Ritwika, the film is produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu.
Reportedly, the film originally slated for July 1 release, might also be delayed for reasons not clearly known yet.
