Rajinikanth in a fierce new avatar. Moreover, it has also become the proverbial talk of the town as it marks the superstar’s second collaboration with Ranjith. Last year, the two came together for ‘Kabali’ which emerged a big winner at the ticket window.
Now, it seems that the buzz surrounding ‘Kaala’ is all set to reach new heights. According a news agency, veteran Bollywood star Nana Patekar will be seen essaying the main antagonist in this mob-drama.
Confirming the same, a source said that he will be seen playing the role of a manipulative politician who locks hands with Rajini’s character.
“Nana ji plays a conniving, ruthless politician and he takes Rajinikanth head on. It’s a very powerful role and audiences are going to love the face-off between him and Rajini sir,” the source revealed.
In case you did not case, Nana is no stranger to Kollywood. In 2008, he made his Kollywood debut when played a pivotal role in ‘Bommalattam’. Directed by Bharthiraja, it featured Arjun in the lead. Let’s hope that ‘Kaala’ serves as a good comeback vehicle for him.
Interestingly, this is a busy time for Rajinikanth. Besides, ‘Kaala’, he has ‘2.0’ in his kitty. A sequel to the 2010 release ‘Enthiran’, it will hit screens in 2018. In addition to ‘Thalaiva’, the film also features Amy Jackson in the lead while Akshay Kumar plays the villain.
