Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Kaala is all set for a massive release worldwide on June 7. While the expectation levels for this film is skyrocketing, at the pre-release event for the film’s Telugu version in Hyderabad, Rajinikanth said that he had watched the movie twice so far and can vouch that it has come out really well.

According to a report in TOI, the actor said, “When it comes to Kaala, we don’t want to sing high praises about our own film and at the same time, we cannot reveal much about the story yet. I’ve seen the film twice and I liked it a lot. It’s not just for commercial reasons, but also has a good message to it.”

He added, “The film is set in the backdrop of Dharavi slum, which is the largest slum in Asia. It deals with characters living inside this slum and tells the story of how it affects people’s lives. Usually in many films, only the hero’s character is of importance and the others may not be as significant. But in Kaala, there are at least six characters that will have a huge impact and will stay with you even after the movie.”

Speaking at the same event, the film’s producer and actor Dhanush said that there is one and only one Rajinikanth, adding that it was an honour to work with an actor like him.

Rajinikanth also had words of praises for the film’s heroines, Huma Qureshi and Easwari Rao. He lauded both of them for being patient through the filmmaking process and performing well in Kaala.

Directed by Pa Ranjith, the film also stars Nana Patekar, Samuthirakani, Aruldoss, Anjali Patil, Sukanya, Aravind Akash and Sayaji Shinde. Santosh Narayanan has composed the music for this action entertainer with G Murali handling the camera and A Sreekar Prasad editing.

Interestingly, director Pa Ranjith, superstar Rajinikanth and music composer Santhosh Narayanan had worked together in Kabali and the film was a smash hit. With the trio teaming up for the second time, expectations are very high on Kaala.
