From flying all the way from London to Mumbai's Aurora theatre to giving free auto rides to those who want to watch Kabali on its release day - Rajinikanth's fans are yet again out to prove why the superstar fandom is beyond comprehension. As the release of his Kabali nears, the buzz around the film is palpable. The sixty-five year old actor's hardcore fans, from different walks of life, are stoked about the first day first show (FDFS) experience. "Some people might think we are crazy, but they won't understand our love for Thalaivar. If you're not watching the first show of a Rajinikanth starrer on release day, you're breaking a tradition," says twenty five years old auto driver Vinek pandey. On July 22, when Kabali will hit the screens, the auto driver with his family will be watching the earliest show of the film in the city. Bengaluru-based twenty three years old techie turned-film critic much popular on social media AshKay Shahrukh will be watching Kabali with random strangers he invited via a Facebook post. "The only common factor between all of us is our love for Rajinikanth. In an open post on Facebook, I've invited genuine Thalaivar fans whom I've never met to join me to watch the film FDFS," said Shahrukh, who will also be reuniting with his schoolmates to watch the film. "In 2007, a large group of us from school watched Sivaji. Seven of us from that group will be reuniting to watch Kabali. I've applied for leave from work and my boss is upset that I've motivated a few others to take leave too," he added. "His films come once in two years, so it's totally worth it," said Syed Iftequar, a sixty two years old enthusiast, who works in a managerial position. "I've already blocked tickets for the FDFS in Chennai. My friends from Mumbai and Hyderabad are flying down to watch the film. It's good to be watching 'Kabali' at a place where it's celebrated the way it's supposed to be," he said. Kabali also stars Radhika Apte as Rajinikanth's love interest.
