The first schedule of shoot of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Kaala Karikaalan has commenced in right earnest in Mumbai yesterday.
Pictures released by the film’s crew depict sequences where director Pa. Ranjith expalains the script to the superstar. In two other photos taken apparently during the film’s shoot, Rajini is shown with Samuthirakani and other actors as he appears to be making a point to another person.
To be the 164th film in Rajini’s career spanning more than four decades now, the film’s first-look posters were released along with the title on the evening of last Thursday. They went viral on social networking sites as Rajini’s fans shared/downloaded it frantically. Within 24 hours, stickers were spotted on city’s vehicles showing the film’s logo and Rajini’s photographs.
The shoot has become even more noticeable as it occurs two weeks after Rajini made his political ambitions clear during his week-long interaction with his fans in Chennai. Ranjith, who directed Rajini’s last year’s colossal hit film Kabaali, is now directing Rajini for the second time in Kaala Karikaalan which is produced by Rajini’s son-in-law and national award-winning actor Dhanush.
