Kaala Kaarikalan is Huma's Tamil film debut. She plays the role of Rajinikanth's aide, Zareena, who helps him bring down a corrupt politician, played by actor Nana Patekar. "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 told IANS.
Meanwhile, a Chennai-based producer filed a petition against the makers of Kaala Karikaalan alleging that the "title, knot and story of Karikaalan absolutely belonged" to his company. A Chennai court issued a notice asking Rajinikanth and the makers to submit their replies by June 15.
Rajinikanth completed the first schedule of Kaala Kaarikalan in Mumbai. Kaala Karikaalan is produced by Rajinikanth's son-in-law Dhanush.
Rajinikanth will next be seen in filmmaker Shankar's 2.0, which is a sequel to his 2010 film Enthiran (released as Robot in Hindi). The film also stars Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson.
