Remember Anjali Patil from the critically-acclaimed indie film, Delhi in a Day? Well, she has hit a jackpot. The Marathi actor, who is also known for her work in National award-winning Telugu film Naa Bangaru Thalli, has landed a pivotal role in Rajinikanth’s upcoming project Kaala Karikaalan. The film is being produced by Dhanush, and Anjali has also worked with the Ranjhanaa star in upcoming film Nimmo in Aanand L Rai’s production.
In an article by Deccan Chronicle, she was quoted as saying, “When I came to Chennai to meet director Ranjith and his team, I felt that this is an ideal group to work with. Even though I took some time to decide, I eventually made up my mind on this project elevating me in the film industry.” Talking about her experience of working with Dhanush, she said, “We worked together in the Hindi film Nimmo, which is produced by director Anand L Rai. It is a happy coincidence to act in his production. When we were shooting for Nimmo, I told Dhanush about being in talks for Pa Ranjith’s project — he was surprised, and we were having a good laugh about it! I admire him as an actor and I am extremely happy to be part of the Wunderbar family.”
The project will start rolling from Sunday in Mumbai, and it will feature Rajinikanth in the role of a messiah of the masses. To be predominantly shot against the backdrop of Dharavi slums, the film will also star actor-filmmaker Samuthirakani and Sakshi Aggarwal in key roles.
