The Kabali madness has taken over the world, and his teasers and songs are raking in hits by the millions online.

But what is the inside story of Kabali? How did it happen?

The Hindu has interviewed Soundarya Rajinikanth, and has put out the story in her own words.

“I know Ranjith from the time he was an assistant to Venkat Prabhu in Goa. I was supposed to produce his debut film, Attakathi, but that didn’t materialise,” she recalls. “One day, Appa mentioned to me that he loved Madras… and it started working on my mind. Later, when I met Ranjith, I casually asked him: Will you make a story for Appa? He froze. He took a few days and then told me the storyline: he opened the pitch saying, ‘Malaysian don’, and that was enough. I conveyed the storyline to Appa, who liked it, and told him it was Ranjith’s line. Today, it is Kabali.”

It also drops a small hint at what the movie is going to be.

Going by this version, and what we saw in the trailer, Rajini is likely to be a Malaysian don who returns to Madras, the city which he loves and once ruled.
