“KABALI”mania or frenzy or promo ;-companies declare paid holiday on release dateThis thread wins the Special Prize for the week 17th to 23rd July '16
I am seeing such frenzy for the first time in my life. I had not heard about any such things from anybody. Companies are reluctant to declare full paid holiday even for elections.
But now when the much hyped Rajanikant starrer Tamil movie 'Kabali' is set to release in a few days, the frenzy has gone to such level that Rajani fans and movie buffs are applying leave en masse. As per media reports,one company has notified that they "have decided holiday on 22nd2016 in efforts to avoid piled up leave request.." and have taken an extra mile by 'providing free tickets.." to the film on release date. That is from a Chennai company Fyndus India Pvt Ltd. Another Chennai based company MSLIVE notified that to avoid large number of leave request, they are declaring July 22 a 'paid leave' and 'as an extra bonus' providing free tickets. It is also reported in media that Bengaluru based Opus Waterproofing also has taken similar step.
Now that such news have come out, we can expect a follow on from many similar companies and employers.
Can it be a real manifestation of mass expectation for the Super star film Kabali or a well planned tied-up promo venture? Anyway many fans may be envying the employees who are lucky this way.
