Superstar Rajinikanth had been a regular visitor to Mumbai as he was shooting for his gangster drama Kaala. However, the south superstar wrapped up shooting his portion in the Mumbai schedule of Kaala earlier this month.
“Rajini sir has completed his portion and is expected to return to Chennai this week. He shot non-stop over the last two weeks. The rest of the team will shoot for another week,” a source had revealed.
However, Rajinikanth was clicked today by the paps in Mumbai. The superstar is apparently back for a bit and was surrounded by excited fans. In the pictures, Rajinikanth is seen donning a grey shirt and seems to be in a serious, solemn mood.
In the movie, Rajinikanth plays a slum lord-turned-gangster. It is the star’s second successive collaboration with director Pa Ranjith after last year’s Kabali. The film, which is being produced by Dhanush, also stars Anjali Patil, Pankaj Tripathi and Samuthirakani. Huma Qureshi is making her Tamil cinema debut with this movie. The actress apparently plays a pivotal role in the movie where she helps Rajinikanth take on Nana Patekar, who plays a ruthless politician.
Other than his work, Rajinikanth has also been in the news for his political career, which is rumoured to be taking off soon. Hindu Makkal Katchi President Arjun Sampath recently revealed that he has urged superstar Rajinikanth to join politics and was told he was “in preparation” for it.
