Right from the first day shoot of Kaala, the team had officially announced that acclaimed Hindi actor Nana Patekar plays an important role in the film.
Now we hear that Nana Patekar plays a character very much similar to what Vijayan played in Kamal Haasan’s Nayagan. Yes, sources say that Nana Patekar will be seen as a politician who tries to drive away the working class Tamil community in Dharavi and the innocent people seek the help of their savior Kaala (Rajinikanth). Sources say that the core story of Kaala has a lot of similarities with Nayagan however, here the protagonist is aged from the first scene.
Eeshwari Rao plays Rajinikanth’s wife in Kaala while Huma Qureshi will also be seen in a crucial role alongside Samuthirakani, Dileepan and Anjali Paatil.
Ranjith of Kabali fame is directing the film and Santhosh Narayanan is scoring the music. The film’s shoot is likely to be wrapped up by the end of this year and the makers are eyeing for April 14, 2018, release.
