AirAsia India, the official airline partner for Rajinikanth-starred Kabali, has unveiled its new re-branded aircraft featuring a livery dedicated to the upcoming movie and Rajni fans.
According to the company, this special aircraft is a mark of respect to the Thalaivar for his contribution to Indian cinema. AirAsia said that parts of the aircraft have been painted and stickered with the image of the 65-year-old actor from the movie.
Apparently, the planes from this Air-Asia airline were used in a few scenes of Kabali.
The aircraft will be flying across the AirAsia India network covering destinations including Bengaluru, New Delhi, Goa, Pune, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Guwahati, Imphal, Vizag, and Kochi.
As an official airline partner for Kabali, it has also planned a special flight from Bengaluru to Chennai for the fans to watch the first-day-first-show of the movie. The package, priced at ₹7,860, will be inclusive of the flight ticket, a movie ticket, an audio CD, Kabali merchandise, breakfast, lunch, and snacks.
AirAsia has also launched a social media contest on their official Facebook page where 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.
Film analysts suggest that Kabali, termed as the ‘hottest film in the Indian film trade right now’, will make ₹200 crore from theatrical deals, merchandise, and endorsement deals before its release. The film trailer has been viewed over 23 million times in less than two months.
