Superstar Rajinikanth is currently working on two projects, Shankar’s Sci-fi 2.0 and Pa Ranjith’s Kaala. In 2.0 Amy Jackson is playing the female lead whereas Akshay Kumar is playing antagonist. 2.0 was initially scheduled to hit the theaters in January 2018 but later the makers postponed its release due to the delay in VFX and post-production.
Recently, the stunt master of Kaala, Dhilip Subbarayan said, Rajinikanth did his own stunts for the film which were risky for his age. He shot a fight scene in a fire with about 60-degree temperature all by himself without the double, which is very hard to perform in extreme conditions like rain and fire.
Set in the 80s, Kaala has Rajini playing a migrant who comes to Mumbai from Tirunelveli and goes on to become a powerful don and later a righteous gangster in Dharavi. Dhanush is producing the film under his banner Wunderbar films and it has the music by Santhosh Narayan. Kaala is Rajinikanth’s second film with Pa Ranjith after Kabali. Apart from him, the film has other stars like Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar and Sakshi Agarwal in supporting role. The film is scheduled to hit the theaters on 27th April.
