The highly revered Rajinikanth is beyond any doubt one of the most decorated and worshipped names in Indian cinema today. Fondly referred to as ‘Thalaivaa’, the icon has established himself as a source of inspiration for fans thanks to his charismatic personality, dashing onscreen image and of course his down-to-earth nature. Moreover, he has earned the respect of fans as he is a self-made star in the truest sense.
Now, there is some awesome news for his well-wishers. As it so happens, some brand new stills from his Kaala are creating a buzz on the social media and that too for all the right reasons. In them, ‘Thalaiva’ can be seen in a raw and intense avatar that he carries off like only he can. His swag truly is hard to miss. His new avatar truly is a treat for movie buffs.
In case you did not know, Kaala is touted to be a crime-drama and has been directed by Pa Ranjith. In it, Rajini will be playing the role of a fierce gangster. Besides Rajini, it also features Bollywood diva Huma Qureshi and veteran actor Nana Patekar in the lead. The supporting cast includes names like Eshwari Rao and Pankaj Tripathi.
Sometime ago, Huma had praised Rajini and said that he is quite a humble person.
“It’s an amazing experience to work with Rajinikanth. When he walks, everybody becomes silent and make space for him. For me, the most beautiful thing with him is the simplicity he carries. He is such a humble person. I have never seen a superstar who is so humble, who is so simple and down-to-earth,” she had told a leading daily.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Rajini. Besides Kaala, he also has the much-hyped magnum opus 2.0 in his kitty. It is touted to be a sci-fi thriller and has been directed by S Shankar. It also has Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead.
