There are more than many similarities between the posters of Irrfan Khan's upcoming film Madaari and south sensation Rajnikanth's upcoming film Kabali. Recently at the promotion of Madaari when Irrfan Khan was asked about the similar posters, he said as quoted in an article in Mid Day, “Even I didn't know that. We are small filmmakers; I saw that Rajinikanthji's film stole the poster of our film. You see his film's poster and see our film's poster. No big deal about it. Watch his film and watch our film, too."
Both the posters see the faces of the lead actors, Irrfan Khan and Rajinikanth, with numerous buildings and skyscrapers standing horizontally on their faces.
Though the Madaari poster is mentioned as its official poster, loyal fans of Rajinikanth have clarified, on a website talking about the comparison, that the Kabali poster in question is a fan-made one and not the official poster.
Speaking about his upcoming film Irrfan also said, "The film is a thriller, the film is talking about you. It is talking about 150 crore people, that there is a hero in every person and when that person wakes up then no one can face that person."
Madaari hits the theatres on July 15.
