Kaala star Rajiniakanth is back in the city after his scheduled visit to the US. He is getting ready for the music launch of his film, Kaala that will be held in Chennai on May 9. His daughter, Soundarya Rajinikanth, took to Twitter to share a short clip of the superstar, which has gone viral. In the video, hundreds of fans can be seen waiting at the airport to see their favourite star. As Rajinikanth emerges, we can hear loud cheers of Thalaiva, the name Rajini has been given by his fans. The media and the public are seen crowding around the actor at the airport.

The video has a background score too - the recently released single from Kaala, Semma Weightu - which has only reiterated the star’s image among his fans. His return to the city could be compared to the hero’s entry scene that one sees on the silver screen. Soundarya captioned the video, “#KaalaReturns #ThalaivarBackInChennai #SemmaWeightu.”

Rajinikanth’s Kaala is about a don, Kaala Karikaalan, hailing from Tamil Nadu who settled in Dharavi, Mumbai. He will fight for the underprivileged against an unfair system in the film. He questions the prejudice that comes along with being a labourer, a dark skinned one at that.

Director Pa Ranjith, who earlier worked with Rajinikanth in Kabali has helmed this project which is produced by Rainikanth’s actor-director son-in-law Dhanush under Wunderbar Studios. The film has music scored by Santhosh Narayanan and stars Nana Patekar as the politician who will clash with Kaala in the film. Easwari Rao plays Kaala’s wife while Samuthirakani, Pankaj Tripathi and Huma Qureshi play pivotal roles in the film.
