Less that 2 days before the official releases of Superstar Rajinikanth's Kabali, a few miscreants leaked some important scenes from the film. The intro scene where the hero, Kabali (Rajini) comes out of a Malaysian prison was illegally leaked. This 2 minute clip became viral through Whatsapp and on the internet.

In reaction to this, the producer of the film, Kalaippuli Thanu took to twitter and wrote, "Watching #Thalaivar entry on phone or computer won't give you goosebumps. Say thank you to pirates,let's watch it in theaters from Friday :)
