Malaysia Plays Host to Superstar’s Kabali and Surya’s S3 Shoots

Malaysia and Tamils have had an unique bonding,  a feeling of extended family from both sides. Whenever Malaysian Tamil friends come home, we never felt the distance or a feel that we are hosting foreigners, such is our connection.  Malaysia has gone over leaps and bounds in encouraging Tamils in their land to the extent we see premiere, launches happening there and the crowd is nowhere lesser in spirits or in numbers to encourage our fraternity.  Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board or Tourism Malaysia invites us with open arms and leaves no stones unturned to makes us feel at home with their hospitality and celebrations.  Their efforts  to see Malaysia as a  tourist destination at all levels has made a big impact with 27.4 million tourist arrivals and RM72 billion in receipts in 2014, making tourism its second largest foreign exchange earner.

Now to the reel news in real, our Superstar Rajnikanth starrer Kabali,  is shot in some of the exotic locations of Malaysia over next few weeks and also stars a couple of Malaysian actors. This is the second schedule of shooting and the superstar was earlier in Malaysia last year and was astonished to see his fan following in the country. Kabali is an ambitious project which is loosely based on the life of popular don Kabaleeswaran.

Similarly, for his third movie in the Singham franchise ‘S3’, superstar Surya has chosen Malaysia as his preferred destination. Surya and his team will be shooting some rare action sequences in the next three weeks. The team is hopeful that with some extensive martial art sequences at the serene backdrops of Malaysia, ‘S3’ will be the movie to wait for in 2016. The movie also stars Anushka Shetty and Shruthi Hassan.

Malaysia has always supported international movie industries from Bollywood to Hollywood. With a large Tamil speaking population and a huge fan following for Kollywood, shooting of superstars Rajnikanth and Surya only add to the glorious relationship Indian and Malaysia have always shared.
