Kalaipuli S Thanu has revealed in a recent interaction that he was supposed to produce Rajinikanth’s blockbuster hit Baasha. “Rajini sir called me and asked to produce Kabali. But due to the highhandedness of a politician, I couldn’t bankroll the project,” says Thanu.
It must be remembered that Baasha got released in 1995 and it was the regime of Jayalalitha’s AIADMK. Thanu has also said that he missed other opportunities to produce Rajinikanth’s Muthu and Annamalai, which went into the hands of other producers.
“Kabali will surpass all records of Rajinikanth films. We are confident about the film’s success. Vijay’s Theri is an example. It was a young team. Kabali too is created by a young team,” says Thanu.
