Recently the director of the movie Pa Ranjith spoke about the film. He says he addresses caste inequalities in his films because he was affected by it and hence he shouldn't be viewed as a Dalit filmmaker. "I don't want to be known as a Dalit filmmaker. I touch upon caste inequalities in my films because I've been affected by it.Even if I don't belong to the oppressed community, I would have continued to speak about inequalities in the society," Ranjith said. In Kabali, Rajinikanth fights for the pay rights of Tamils in Malaysia and there are subtle nods to B R Ambedkar and professor-author Y B Satyanarayana.
