The first of the big releases of 2018, 'Superstar' Rajinikanth’s Kaala has everybody in an euphoric state after the film’s release date was announced last weekend.
Directed by Pa. Ranjith, Kaala is at present in its post-production stages under Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films banner with music by Santhosh Narayanan and includes a power-packed ensemble star cast featuring names like Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Samuthirakani, Shayaji Shinde, Easwari Rao, Aravind Akash, Anjali Patil among others.
Meanwhile, a video featuring Rajini in an action scene has now leaked online from the post-production table leaving team Kaala quite miffed. As of now, efforts are said to be underway to identify the individual(s) behind the footage leak along with trying to curb the spread of the video.
Likewise, another big film of the year, Vijay’s Thalapathy 62, which has been announced for a Diwali release too is facing a similar outcome.
Although the footage from Kaala was off the editing table, the video that has surfaced online in regard to Vijay 62 is from the shooting spot where 'Thalapathy' Vijay is seen delivering a climactic blow to a stunt artist.
Such leaks has indeed raised quite a bit of an alert in the industry with some suggesting more stringent measures to shoot their films in order to keep all the best packaged surprise elements in store till its time of release.
