Chennai: Superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming Tamil gangster drama "Kabali" will hit the marquee on July 1, a source said. "The film was earlier slated to release in June. It has been now pushed to July 1. The makers had also planned to release on July 7 but have advanced the release to avoid a clash with Salman Khan's 'Sultan'," a source from the film's unit said. Directed by Pa. Ranjith, "Kabali" is the story of the rise of a gangster from rags-to-riches. The makers are currently busy with the post-production work and dubbing. Taiwanese actor Winston Chao joined the team on Wednesday in the city to dub his lines. Also starring Radhika Apte, Dinesh, Kalaiarasan, Dhansikaa and Ritwika, the film is produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu.
