AirAsia India has unveiled its all new re-branded aircraft featuring a livery dedicated to the upcoming Rajnikanth movie – Kabali. The airline said that the special livery is a devoted to the Tamil superstar and his fans.
AirAsia Group Bhd-promoted AirAsia India Pvt. Ltd’s special aircraft is a mark of respect to the contribution the Tamil actor has made to Indian cinema, the company said.
“AirAsia India unveiled its all new rebranded aircraft, with a livery dedicated to the most awaited movie of the year—Kabali,” AirAsia said in a statement.
Bearing the image of Rajini from the movie Kabali, parts of the aircraft have been painted and stickered with the livery. The aircraft is scheduled to fly across the AirAsia India network of destinations spanning Bengaluru, New Delhi, Goa, Pune, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Guwahati, Imphal, Vizag and Kochi.
When it comes to Rajinikanth, it doesn’t seem odd that a special flight be decked with the superstar’s image so that fans can be flown to see the first day, first show of Kabali in Chennai. And that is exactly what has happened. The Tamil gangster movie, which has been written and directed by Pa Ranjith was scheduled to release on July 15, but there are reports that suggest it may be postponed to July 22. “The exact reason is still unknown but the makers are most likely to push the release by a week. The film will now release on July 22. As soon as the censor is done, the makers will officially announce the release date,” a source from the film’s unit told reporters.

The airline has also launched a social media contest asking Rajni fans to post their Kabali style video on their official Facebook page. The top 10 winners will get to watch the first show of Kabali on the day of release. Three other winners will stand a chance to fly to the locations where the movie was shot in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.
