Many of us know that the real name of Superstar Rajinikanth is Shivaji Rao Gaekwad. And in his upcoming film Kaala, there is a character in this name.
Guess who is playing it? It is Aravind Aakash who is well-known for his roles in Venkat Prabhu’s Mankatha, Chennai-28 and its sequel.
Remember Pa Ranjith, the director of Kabali, is a former associate of Venkat Prabhu, and hence, shares a good rapport with Aravind Aakash.
Talking about his role, the actor says, “I play the role of a Marathi policeman in the movie. And the best part is that the name of my character in the movie is Shivaji Rao Gaekwad.”
He added: “There cannot be a bigger irony than this. I have started shooting for the role, but haven’t been able to meet Thalaivar still. After all, it takes time to meet God himself.”
Recently, social media was buzzing with reports that Mammootty has been signed on to play B.R. Ambedkar-like role in the film. Also, it is said that if all goes well, the film’s producer Dhanush will be playing the younger version of Rajini.
