Pa Ranjith and Rajinikanth reunite after the super success of Kabaali last year. But a tragedy has struck the shoot of their next film together, Kaala. A crew member of Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala died on the sets after he stepped on a live wire. The worker, Michael, was at the huge set reportedly worth Rs 5 crore being erected in Chennai for Kari Kaalan shoot in EVP Studios in Poonamalle.
According to Deccan Chronicle, the individual was electrocuted as he had stepped on an electric wire, and though his co-workers rushed him to the hospital, he lost his life. The same report has also quoted sources as saying that the police officials are currently investigating the case.
The film produced by actor and Rajinikanth’s son-in-law, Dhanush under Wunder Films has already created a hype among fans after Kabali. In fact, it can also be said that Shankar’s 2.0, also starring Akshay Kumar, has taken a back seat. As the superstar continues to work on Kaala, the VFX work for 2.0 is currently underway, and if sources are to be believed, then the trailer of the film might release on the occasion of Rajinikanth’s birthday on December 12. The film is expected to release during the Republic Day.
Kaala, also known as Kaala Karikaalan, is an upcoming Tamil-language gangster filmwritten and directed by Pa. Ranjith. Actress Huma Qureshi was later added to the cast in early May 2017 to feature in a role opposite Rajinikanth. Marathi actress Anjali Patil also announced that she would be playing an important role in the film through a post on her official Twitter account. Several members of the technical crew of Kabali were retained for Kaala, with A. Sreekar Prasad replacing Praveen K. L. as the film’s editor during its pre-production stage. Bollywood actor Nana Patekar is recently signed to play as politician in this movie.
