The film’s release, slated for April 27, might be postponed because of the ongoing strike in the Tamil film industry.

Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala is one of the highly anticipated films this season. After recently completing the censor formalities, the film has been awarded a U/A certificate. Sources close to the crew say that the film has been censored with 14 cuts.

Kaala, directed by Pa Ranjith, stars Rajinikanth in the title role. The film was slated to hit the marquee on April 27, but it looks like the film’s release might get postponed because of the ongoing strike by Tamil film producers. Lyca Productions, who have bagged the distribution rights for the film, has extended its support to the Tamil Film Producers’ Council.

“We are in sync with the Producers Council and in complete support of the demands. We will comply with the same till the system is rectified. #TFPC,” Lyca Productions recently tweeted.

Brushing aside rumours that the character of Rajinikanth, who plays a slum lord turned gangster in the film, is based on the life of Haji Mastan, director Ranjith in a recent interview to Tamil magazine Vikatan clarified that the film is not inspired by any person’s life. He said that the film talks about the livelihood of a society, Dharavi in particular. Ranjith said that the story is about the diversity of Dharavi slum.

The film has a bevy of stars in the cast including Samuthirakani, Eswari Rao, Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil, Sukanya, Aravind Akash and Sayaji Shinde. The film also stars Nana Patekar as the main antagonist. The Ab Tak Chhappan actor, who will play the role of a ruthless, conniving politician, is returning to Tamil films after a decade.

Santosh Narayan is the music director for this flick with Murali G being the cinematographer and A Sreekar Prasad the editor. Kaala is bankrolled by Dhanush under his banner Wunderbar Films.

It is worth noting here that director Pa Ranjith and Rajinikanth had teamed up earlier for the movie Kabali in 2016 and it went on to become a huge hit.
