Pa Ranjith’s movie Kaala has been awarded a U/A certificate after 14 cuts by the Central Board of Film Certification, The News Minute reported. Starring Rajinikanth as a Mumbai slum lord and messiah, Kaala was originally scheduled for an April 27 release, but the date is likely to be changed because of the ongoing strike by Tamil film producers over the issue of digital projection fees.

Lyca Productions, which will distribute the Wunderbar Films production, has expressed its solidarity with the Tamil Film Producers’ Council.

The cast for Kaala includes Nana Patekar, Samuthirakani, Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil, Sukanya and Sayaji Shinde. Apart from Kaala, approximately 30 other Tamil films are likely to be affected by the strike.
