After much speculation on the release date of the big film, Kaala, after the Tamil cinema strike was called off, producer of Kaala, actor Dhanush, has finally confirmed the release date for this gangster drama. Dhanush took to Twitter and confirmed that Kaala will release on June 7th, 2018 worldwide in all languages and not on April 27th, 2018 as per previous schedule. This announcement comes after the strike by the Tamil cinema producers was called off by the producers’ council. A lot was being speculated about Rajinikanth’s Kaala and Kamal Haasan’s Viswaroopam 2 release dates and it was being reported that Viswaroopam 2 may get released first. However, Dhanush’s announcement regarding Kaala has given fans of Tamil cinema and Rajinikanth a reason for celebration after they waited long enough for the film.

Kaala is being directed by Pa Ranjith and will have Rajinikanth play the role of a don, set in the backdrop in the slums of Mumbai. The film has a stellar star cast with few big names from Bollywood including Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi and Pankaj Tripathi. Kaala is being produced by Rajinikanth’s son-in-law, actor Dhanush under his home banner Wunderbar Films.
The music of Kaala is being rendered by Santosh Narayanan who had also composed the music for Kabali directed by Pa Ranjith again. The song Neruppu Da became a rage amongst music lovers across the globe and not just amongst Tamil movie buffs. Expectations on the album of Kaala is quite high since the first look posters of the film indicate that Rajinikanth would be seen playing a powerful don in the film. Kaala is said to be set in the slums of Mumbai’s Dhaaravi. Eswari Devi will be seen playing the role of Rajinikanth’s wife in Kaala while actor and filmmaker Samuthirakani will be seen playing an important role.
