Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala is one of the most anticipated big releases with a very promising cast. The film marks the Tamil debut of Bollywood actor Huma Qureshi, and she was believed to be playing Rajinikanth’s pair.

However, we have learnt that Huma doesn’t pay his love interest and that it is Easwari Rao who will be paired with Rajinikanth. Huma is said to be playing a pivotal role from the story’s perspective. Nana Patekar will be seen playing a politician with a negative shade. The film also stars Anjali Patil, Pankaj Tripathi and Samuthirakani in important roles.

Rajinikanth will supposedly have dialogues in Hindi, and the makers don’t intend to dub those lines in Tamil as it will appeal to non-Hindi speaking audiences as well. Rajinikanth has completed shooting his portion in the Mumbai schedule and he is back in Chennai to commence work on the next schedule.

In the film, produced by Dhanush, superstar plays a slum-lord-turned-gangster. The film is tipped to be made as a Tamil-Hindi bilingual and will also be dubbed in Telugu. The project marks the reunion of director Pa. Ranjith with Rajinikanth after Kabali, and it is believed that Kaala revolves around the lives of oppressed Tamils in Mumbai and their fight for equality.

Important sequences of the film will be shot in the Chennai schedule where the makers have erected a set of Dharavi on a budget of over a crore. Santhosh Narayan is scoring the music, while national award-winning Sreekar Prasad will take care of editing.
