National award winning star Samuthirakani will soon be seen alongside Rajinikanth in the eagerly-awaited ‘Kaala’. And, needless to say, he is quite excited about the same. During a recent interaction with a popular news agency, he said that working with ‘Thalaiva’ was a dream come true for him. Moreover, he added that it was one of the biggest moments of his career.
“When I finished the first shot with Rajini sir, I felt so proud of myself. It felt like a lifetime achievement. I have waited really long to share screen space with him,” he added.
Interestingly, Samuthirakani has been a part of Southern cinema for nearly two decades. During this time, he has worked with names such as Dhanush, Mohanlal and Vishal. However, as it so happens, ‘Kaala’ marks his first collaboration with Rajinikanth.
In case you did not know, ‘Kaala’ is touted to be a crime-drama and features Rajini in the role of a gangster. Last month, the superstar shot for some crucial scenes in Mumbai. Needless to say, this has created quite a buzz amongst fans.
Besides Rajini, the film also features Bollywood diva Huma Qureshi and Nana Patekar in the lead. Nana will be playing a negative role in this one. Interestingly, ‘Kaala’ is being directed by Pa Ranjith. It marks his second collaboration with Rajinikanth. The two had previously collaborated for the 2016 release ‘Kabali’ which fared pretty well at the BO.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Rajini. Besides ‘Kaala’, he has ‘2.0’ in his kitty.
