Kaala the upcoming Tamil-language gangster film of the superstar Rajinikanth is all set for the shooting. The shooting of the movie Kaala began from Sunday in Mumbai. The on-set working stills featuring Rajinikanth, director Pa. Ranjith and other supporting actors have been released online. The director has assembled a huge star cast for his second directorial outing with the superstar after Kabali, including Bollywood actors Nana Patekar and Huma Qureshi. Kaala (English: Lord of Death or Dark-skinned One) is also known as Kaala Karikaalan, is an upcoming movie which is written and directed by Pa. Ranjith and produced by Dhanush. This movie revolves around the life of a Mumbai-based don Karikalan which is played by Rajinikanth. In this movie Huma Qureshi, Samuthirakani and Anjali Patil also star in pivotal roles.

As as far as the film’s technical team is concerned, barring editor Sreekar Prasad, Ranjith has retained all the members of his Kabali crew, including music composer Santhosh Narayanan. Ranjith is among the few filmmakers in Tamil who got the opportunity to direct Rajinikanth in his back-to-back films. Last year, Kabali, which showed Rajinikanth in a gangster avatar after a gap of 20 years, was among the top-grossing films in India. Before Kabali, the Thalaivar’s last gangster film was Baasha (1995).

In Tamil, Kaala or Kaalan means Yama, the God of death. And Rajinikanth playing the role of Karikaalan which was the name of a Chola king who known for his wisdom and bravery. Which is why Karikaalan denotes courage and that comes through in the arrogance and swagger that Rajini conveys through his body language. And showing the world of Dharavi behind him is to emphasise that the gangster lords over it.
