Rajinikanth to resume shoot for Kaala
The actor has returned to the city after a trip to the US for a medical check-up and is all set to join the filming in Chennai
Rajinikanth, who was in the United States for a medical check-up, is back in the city and will resume shooting for Ranjith's gangster film, Kaala. Sources say that the actor and his daughter Aishwaryaa had left the country after completing the first schedule, which was wrapped up on June 27, and had only returned to Chennai a couple of days ago.
CE learns that a special set resembling Mumbai’s famous Dharavi area has been put up for the film, and Pa Ranjith and the team are all set to continue the shoot. In the film, Rajinikanth plays Karikalan, who stands up to protect Tamil people in Mumbai. He appears in Kaala with the same salt-and-pepper looks as in his previous film, Kabali, but carries the swag of a mass leader. Rumour has it that, after completing Kaala, Rajini has plans to quit acting and become a full-time politician. However, there is no confirmation on this as yet.
