Rajinikanth has started the shooting for his next bilingual, Kaala.

Superstar Rajinikanth’s next film, Kaala, with Kabali director Pa. Ranjith, went on the floors on Sunday in Mumbai where it will be shot non-stop for next 40 days.

Rajinikanth plays a Tamil migrant in Mumbai in the film.

We have exclusively learnt that the project will be made in Tamil as well as Hindi, and it will feature some dialogues in Marathi too. It is believed that the film will revolve around south Indians, especially Tamilians in Mumbai and their fight for equality.

Kaala is a colloquial word used to insult south Indians, especially used to target their race. The film will have music by Santhosh Narayanan and National award-winning editor Sreekar Prasad is part of the project.

“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,” a source from the film’s unit told Hindustan Times.

The makers on Sunday confirmed that Huma Qureshi plays the leading lady, while popular Bollywood star Nana Patekar will be seen in a key role.

The film will also stars Anjali Patil, Sayaji Shinde, Samuthirakani and Sakshi Aggarwal in supporting roles. Tipped to be another gangster saga, the film is being produced by Dhanush.
