Pa Ranjith’s second movie with Tamil star Rajinikanth after Kabali will be out on April 27. Kaala is set in Mumbai and features Rajinikanth as an underworld don. The movie has been produced by Wunderbar Films, which is owned by Rajinikanth’s son-in-law Dhanush.
The cast reportedly includes Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil and Samuthirakani.
The announcement of the release date has increased speculation that the other big Rajinikanth movie of the year, Shankar’s 2.0, will not be released in mid-April after all. The sequel to Shankar’s science-fiction movie Enthiran (2010) involves numerous visual effects, which has apparently led to a delay in its completion. 2.0 stars Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumar alongside Rajinikanth.
