Kaala will see Rajinikanth play his as he plays the role of a slum lord-turned-gangster.

Superstar Rajinikanth has two big releases in his kitty. While all eyes are on Shankar’s 2.o, tipped to be being made on a budget of over Rs 400 crore, there is also good anticipation for his other project Kaala, which reunites him with Kabali director Pa Ranjith.

Kaala will see Rajinikanth play his as he plays the role of a slum lord-turned-gangster. The project went on the floors earlier this year and according to its producer Dhanush, nearly 60 per cent of the shoot has been successfully wrapped up. Dhanush went on to add that it’ll be a celebration film for all Thalaivar fans.

Kaala is being made as a Tamil-Hindi bilingual and will also have lines in Marathi as the film is being predominantly shot in Mumbai. Kaala is believed to revolve around the lives of oppressed Tamils in Mumbai and their fight for equality. The project is currently being shot in a huge replica of Dharavi slum in Chennai where the makers have erected a set worth over Rs 5 crore. Inside rumours are that the film might hit the screens on Rajinikanth’s birthday on December 12 later this year.

Meanwhile, Dhanush also quashed rumours that 2.0, the sequel to 2010 blockbuster Enthiran, has been postponed to April 2018. He confirmed that the film will hit the screens in January next year and it will be the biggest release for an Indian film.
