Superstar Rajinikanth’s new film has been titled as Kaala with a tagline Karikaalan. The first look poster and font design were unveiled by the actor’s son-in-law and the film’s producer Dhanush on Thursday.
Kaala will mostly be filmed in Chennai and will have music composed by Santhosh Narayanan. Kaala marks yet another collaboration between Rajinikanth and Pa.Ranjith after Kabali.
Bollywood actress Anjali Patil, who is popular for her off-beat roles in Hindi cinema, is the latest addition to the Rajini-Ranjith’s film’s star cast. Huma Qureshi is also there.
Anjali Patil of Finding Fanny fame tweeted, “Next film for this year. With THE ONE AND ONLY. Thalaiva. Produced by @dhanushkraja Directed by @beemji #Rajnikanth #Superstar #Kaala.”
In the first look of Kaala, wearing a brown veshti and a black kurta and black goggles, Rajinikanth appears in a look strongly reminiscent of Kabali.
But the jeep bearing a Maharashtra license plate and the fish eye panorama of Mumbai stretching behind him in all its chaotic glory, suggests interesting new possibilities in his upcoming collaboration with Ranjith.
Interestingly there is also a mongrel dog sitting behind Rajinikanth.
