Rajinikanth has started dubbing for his 159th movie Kabali, which is directed by Pa. Ranjith and produced by Thanu.

Recently, the makers completed the editing of the film and on Monday, the superstar started dubbing for Kabali. The dubbing works of the other artists will also be done simultaneously.

The actor sporting a white beard and a tailored suit appears as an ageing, menacing don in the film. His character is said to be inspired from a real life don named Kabaleeshwaran, with Radhika Apte playing his wife.

The movie is set against the backdrop of the mafia and is a gangster flick. After the blockbuster Basha, this is the first full length role for Rajinikanth as a don.

Kabali has been made on a huge budget of Rs 80 crore. The shooting has been wrapped up completely, and the post-production work has started.

The makers are planning an audio launch by end of April or in May in Malaysia. The most anticipated teaser will be released during the audio launch, sources say.

Although the makers are doubtful, Rajinikanth recently confirmed that Kabali will release in the last week of May or early June.
