Sources say that the movie might hit the screens for the Eid weekend and would lock horns with Vikram’s Saamy Square. Earlier, Dhanush’s Vada Chennai was scheduled to release for the Eid weekend. It looks like, Dhanush, who has produced Kaala, might postpone Vada Chennai (which is also produced by him) to make way for Superstar’s film.
In Kaala, Rajinikanth plays a slum-lord-turned gangster. The film also stars Nana Patekar, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Huma Qureshi and Samuthirakani in pivotal roles.
According to director Ranjith, Kaala is about the diverse families which live in Mumbai’s Dharavi slum, filled with people from different cultures and languages.
