TamilWire is one of the early birds to report that Superstar Rajinikanth’s next film to be directed by Ranjith may be titled as ‘Kaali’.
Now it appears most likely that the character played by the Superstar in this film will be named as ‘Kaali’ and that will also be the title of the film as a reliable source within Kollywood has said this. The official confirmation from the makers regarding the title is still awaited.
It is to be noted that Rajinikanth had acted in a film titled ‘Kaali’ directed by I.V.Sasi in 1980 and the veteran actor’s character name in his evergreen classic film ‘Mullum Malarum’ directed by Mahendran is also Kaali. Incidentally, today is the 76th birthday of director Mahendran.
The term Kaali also has a striking connection with director Ranjith as the working title for his critically acclaimed and super hit film ‘Madras’ was ‘Kaali’ and that was also the name of the lead character in the film played by Karthi.
The shooting for this yet to be titled film to be produced by Kalaipuli S.Thanu is expected to begin in the first week of August in Malaysia if the strike call announced by the Tamil Film Producers Council is withdrawn within that time.
