The iconic Rajinikanth is undoubtedly one of the most revered and celebrated names in Indian cinema today. Fondly called ‘Thalaiva’, the living legend has established himself as a source of inspiration for fans thanks to his charismatic personality, dashing onscreen image and of course his humble nature. Moreover, he has earned the respect of fans as he is a self-made superstar in the purest sense.
Now, there is some good news for his fans. As it so happens, the official teaser of Kaala—which was released on March 2—has become the toast of K-town and managed to clock over 20 million hits in no time. On the day of its release, it had clocked five million in a matter of hours and left the Kabali teaser far behind. Rajini mania truly is running wild!
In case you did not know, Kaala is touted to be a crime-drama and has been directed by Pa Ranjith. Its teaser suggests, it will touch upon the rise of the down-trodden and may have some political undertones. Besides Rajini, it also features Bollywood star Huma Qureshi in the lead. A while ago, the Badlapur star had said that working with Rajinikanth was a nice experience for her.
“Even if I were made to stand like a tree next to him, I would have been very happy. But thankfully, Ranjith has written a great role for me. Acting in another language is very difficult, for me, as an actress. So, the roles have to be worth it. It’s a powerful role, and it’s more special as it is Rajini sir’s film,” she had told a leading daily.
Kaala also has Nana Patekar in the lead and he will be playing the antagonist here. The film is slated to hit screens on April 27, 2018, but it could get delayed because of the tiff between producers-DSPs and exhibitors.
