Rajinikanth plays the titular role, a slum-lord-turned-gangster in Kaala Karikaalan. Initially, shooting of the film was being considered to be done in Mumbai's Dharavi, one of the largest slums of the world, which was later cancelled. "Rajini sir plays a slum lord. Originally, the plan was to shoot in real Dharavi, but we realised it would be impossible. Hence, an exhaustive set was built in Chennai to shoot major portion of the film," the source added. The second leg of the movie will be shot in Chennai once the team wraps their schedule in Chennai.
Kaala Karikaalan also stars Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil and Samuthirakani in significant roles while Pankaj Tripathi features as a cop with 'shades of grey.'Kaala Karikaalan marks the second collaboration between director Pa Ranjith and Rajinikanth after 2016 blockbuster Kabali, which was also a gangster drama.
