​The official teaser of Rajinikanth's upcoming film, Kabali, has created an all-time new record on You Tube.

As of 28 May, the Kabali teaser, which was unveiled on YouTube on 30 April, garnered a record 20 million views - the first teaser of an Indian film to achieve this feat. It is a remarkable achievement considering the fact the teaser has garnered this milestone in just 29 days.

Kabali features Rajnikanth in the role of an ageing don. The 67-second teaser introduces viewers to Rajinikanth's character Kabali. And in a whistle-podu dialogue, the superstar goes on to say that he is no ordinary gangster. Sporting John Lennon glasses and three-piece suit, the 65-year old is referred to as fire.

The teaser ends with a shot of Rajinikanth from the 1970s, where he's seen walking out of a restaurant, flipping his hair back in his inimitable fashion. ​Kabali seems to be Rajinikanth's big ticket to conquer the film world after his previous films, Lingaa, and Kochadaiiyan proved to be Box Office duds.

Over 40 % of the film was shot in Malaysia and the Thalaiva-starrer also features many Malaysian actors. The film will simultaneously release in Malay, Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi when it hits the screens this July.
