Actor Nana Patekar will play the prime antagonist in Tamil film Kaala Karikaalan while Huma Qureshi will also be seen in a pivotal role and marks her Tamil debut. "Nana Patekar plays a conniving, ruthless politician and he takes Rajinikanth head on. It's a very powerful role and audiences are going to love the face-off between him and Rajini sir," a source earlier told IANS.
Kaala Karikaalan is produced by Dhanush's Wunderbar Films. Dhanush is married to Rajinikanth's elder daughter Aishwaryaa.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth will next be seen in Shankar's 2.0, which is a sequel to their 2010 film Enthiran (Robot in Hindi). The film also stars Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson.
