Kaala Karikaalan: After Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar joins the team.

The most exciting factor about superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala has to be the film’s promising cast. Director Ranjith’s choice of actors so far has made everybody take notice of the film and at the same time look forward to the movie with a sense of anticipation. The biggest attraction has to be the inclusion of actor Nana Patekar who, according to trusted sources, plays the main antagonist. He will be seen playing a politician and is believed to take Rajinikanth head on.

Since the film will be predominantly shot against the backdrop of Mumbai, the makers decided to simultaneously shoot the film in Hindi. If not every scene, those featuring Rajinikanth and some key supporting cast will be shot in Hindi. Unlike Kabali, the film won’t be dubbed in Hindi, and Rajinikanth is expected to mouth his lines in Hindi and in Marathi in some key junctures.

Nana Patekar will play the villain in Rajinikanth’s Kaala.

Dhanush is bankrolling the project and there are rumours that he might play the younger version of his father-in-law in the film which will shine the spotlight on the lives of oppressed Tamils in Mumbai. With the film’s shooting going at brisk pace, the makers are finding it extremely difficult to avoid leaks, especially pictures from the sets. The title track of Kaala, which has music by Santhosh Narayanan, has also mysteriously surfaced online.
