In Kaala, Rajinikanth’s name is Karikalan and his close associates refer him as Kaala Sait. The film’s director Ranjith says that Rajinikanth wanted him to do a sequel to Kabali but the personal experiences in Dharavi inspired the filmmaker to write a fresh script.
The film also stars actors Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar, Anjali Patil and Samuthirakani.
Besides Kaala, Rajinikanth will also be seen in 2.0 directed by Shankar starring Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson which is to hit the screens in April, next year.
Kaala marks the 164th film of Rajinikanth’s elaborate career in which the actor essays the role of a man who hails from Tamil Nadu but escapes to Mumbai. It traces his journey to becoming the righteous gangster from the Dharavi slums in the financial capital of the country.
