Pa Ranjith the director of the movie said that after Madras he was planning another realistic movie but all of a sudden Soundarya daughter of Rajinikanth who he already know from the shooting of Goa movie said that Rajinikanth would like to meet him to discuss about a new movie. Pa Ranjith himself has admitted that he was skeptical about it but when he met Rajinikanth every preoccupied thought got washed away as both of them gelled well and Pa Ranjith said that he has two story in hand one of a don and another is a sci-fi. Rajinikanth told him to develop the don story. Anyhow after finishing the first draft he let Rajinikanth read and Rajinikanth was a bit skeptical as the character and the story was too raw. But Pa Ranjith was not willing for a compromise and finally Rajinikanth said yes to kabali.
Pa Ranjith in that interview has specifically said that Kabali is a emotional movie and it is about the lives of Tamil people in Malaysia. Super hero elements in Kabali is not cliche and will be first of its kind in Tamil and Rajinikanth's career.
