It is a well-known fact that 'Superstar' Rajinikanth’s popularity is unmatched across the nation.

The upcoming action gangster drama film, Kaala, will see Rajinikanth under Pa. Ranjith’s direction and produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar films banner.

Slated for an April 27 release date, Kaala has Rajinikanth paired opposite Bollywood actor Huma Qureshi as the female lead and Nana Patekar as the antagonist with Santhosh Narayanan for the music.

Although Rajinikanth’s Kaala has only one competitor for now on April 27 in Tamil in the form of the Karthik-Gautham Karthik starrer, Mr. Chandramouli, two other big films in the Telugu film industry have now backed out from coming out on the same weekend.
