Superstar Rajinikanth’s next film with director Ranjith ‘Kabali’ featuring Radhika Apte seems to be the talk of the tinsel town these days, with news about his latest photo shoot for the film going viral in social media. The film is believed to be about a Chennai-based aging gangster Kabalishwaran, who ends up in Malaysia.

The high profile photo- shoot, which happened recently in AVM studios, seems to have been wrapped up in three hours, with a Korean photographer shooting Rajinikanth and Radhika Apte.

Rajinkanth is said to be sporting a salt and pepper look along with thick white beard for his role as the compelling gangster. Radhika Apte, on the other hand, seems to be in a traditional avatar, replete with a silk saree and nose rings. Rajinikanth is also said to be holding a girl baby in his hands, as he poses with the demure Radhika in one of the photos.

Immediately after the photoshoot, Radhika Apte took to twitter to express her excitement on meeting the Superstar. Actor Kalaiyarasan, who got critical acclaim for his role in Ranjith’s earlier film ‘Madras’, also tweeted saying it was the biggest day of his career.

We hear from sources that the Kabali team has plans to release the first look on September 17, the day the shoot commences in Malaysia. Also featuring Dhansikaa, Dinesh, Prakash Raj and Gajaraj, Kabali has music composed by Santhosh Narayanan.
