It has been reported that Mollywood megastar Mammootty, who had earlier starred alongside superstar Rajinikanth in the super-duper hit film Thalapathi more than two decades back, may play a cameo in Rajini’s upcoming film Kaala Karikaalan.
Pa Ranjith, who made Rajini’s colossal hit film Kabali last year, is making Kaala Karikaalan with Rajini and Bollywood’s Huma Qureshi and Anjali Patil in the lead. The shoot of the film, which commenced last Sunday in Mumbai, has been going on at real-life locations as per Ranjith’s wish which was approved by Rajini.
Fans of superstar Rajinikanth have been thronging the shooting spot(s) in huge numbers, making it tough for the film’s crew to plan things out; local police have been helping the crew in controlling the crowd. Santhosh Narayanan scores the music of the film which is produced by Rajini’s son-in-law Dhanush.
It is said that Mammootty may play Dr. Ambedkar in the film. He had already won a national awarded for ‘best actor’ in the past by playing Ambedkar in his biopic. It is also said that Mammootty and Rajini are in talks with ace director Mani Ratnam who wants to bring his Thalapathi team together to make another film later this year.
