This is something that only happens when a movie featuring superstar Rajinikanth hits the screens. A number of companies in Chennai and Bengaluru have declared a holiday on July 22, the day ‘thalaiva’s’ Kabali releases. Employees from various companies were planning to go on mass sick leave to catch the first day first show of their favourite star’s film, and that is when the companies decided to give them the day off as a pre-emptive measure.
Rajinikanth Fans Are Getting The Day Off To Watch Kabali Movie and its all over the social media!
Manoj Pushparaj of Opus Waterproofing stated, “This was an internal company circulation which was sent out on Sunday. I could feel the eagerness in my employees, so instead of dealing with mass bunks and mobile switch offs, I came up with the idea of declaring a holiday on July 22 and be a part of the celebration. It would also serve as a motivation to my employees. Like Diwali bonus, we treated them to Kabali bonus.”
In Coimbatore, software company Payoda has even bought ‘first day, first show’ tickets for 300 lucky employees:
