From flying all the way from
London to Mumbai’s Aurora theatre to giving free auto rides to those who want
to watch Kabali on its release day – Rajinikanth’s fans are yet again out to
prove why the superstar fandom is beyond comprehension. As the release of his
Kabali nears, the buzz around the film is palpable. The sixty-five year old
actor’s hardcore fans, from different walks of life, are stoked about the first
day first show (FDFS) experience. “Some people might think we are crazy,
but they won’t understand our love for Thalaivar. If you’re not watching the
first show of a Rajinikanth starrer on release day, you’re breaking a
tradition,” says twenty five years old auto driver Vinek pandey. On July
22, when Kabali will hit the screens, the auto driver with his family will be
watching the earliest show of the film in the city. Bengaluru-based twenty
three years old techie turned-film critic much popular on social media AshKay
Shahrukh will be watching Kabali with random strangers he invited via a
Facebook post. “The only common factor between all of us is our love for
Rajinikanth. In an open post on Facebook, I’ve invited genuine Thalaivar fans
whom I’ve never met to join me to watch the film FDFS,” said Shahrukh, who
will also be reuniting with his schoolmates to watch the film. “In 2007, a
large group of us from school watched Sivaji. Seven of us from that group will
be reuniting to watch Kabali. I’ve applied for leave from work and my boss is
upset that I’ve motivated a few others to take leave too,” he added.
“His films come once in two years, so it’s totally worth it,” said
Syed Iftequar, a sixty two years old enthusiast, who works in a managerial
position. “I’ve already blocked tickets for the FDFS in Chennai. My friends
from Mumbai and Hyderabad are flying down to watch the film. It’s good to be
watching ‘Kabali’ at a place where it’s celebrated the way it’s supposed to
be,” he said. Kabali also stars Radhika Apte as Rajinikanth’s love
