Wunderbar Films, producers of Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala, has rejected reports in few sections of media which claimed that the film will be postponed to some other date.
The production house denied all these reports and confirmed that the film will definitely release on June 7 as planned.
“Contrary to some news articles, #Kaala releases on June 7th, 2018 as planned. Watch out for more exciting news in the coming days! We can’t wait to show you guys the swag of Super Star as Kaala Karikaalan,” Wunderbar tweeted.
The film is directed by Pa Ranjith and Rajinikanth plays an aged gangster named Kaala from the Dharavi slums of Mumbai. Nana Patekar plays the antagonist.
The film also has Samuthirakani, Huma Qureshi, Eswari Rao, Sampath, Ravi Kale, Sayaji Shinde, Pankaj, Anjali Patil, Arvind Akash and Sukanya playing pivotal characters.
Speaking at the audio launch of Kaala in Chennai recently, Rajini said, “I loved the story of Linga and it reflected my life’s dream — interlinking all South Indian rivers.”
“But it didn’t do well. I realised then that I have to start doing characters that are appropriate for my age. A 65-year-old can act as a 45-year-old, but not as a 30-year-old opposite a young female lead like Sonakshi Sinha, who is the same age as my daughters,” he added.
He said that he hoped, just like millions of his admirers, to listen to the voice of former Chief Minister and DMK president M. Karunanidhi’s voice again.
On director Pa Ranjith, he said, “I told him (Ranjith) that Kabali was your film but Kaala should be both my film and your film. Ranjith will not finish his career as a director. He is the one to think that his community, friends and family should come up in life.”
Rajini added: “After Kabali, I listened to a script from Vetrimaaran, which was superb. But it was an entirely political film. I did not have any plans to enter politics then. There is politics in Kaala, but it is not a political film.”
