The makers of the film had earlier planned to shoot on real locations of Dharavi and but then realized that it was impossible. Even while shooting for Rajinikanth’s portions, the crew had a tough time managing the crowd as there was a risk of the plot being leaked.
Rajinikanth will be seen playing the lead role of a slum-lord-turned-gangster. Major portions of the film will be shot in Chennai in a special set erected. The film also stars Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil and Samuthirakani. Actor Pankaj Tripathi will be seen playing a cop. Kaala Karikalan will also mark the second collaboration of director Pa Ranjith and Rajinikanth after their film Kabali. The film is the sequel to Kabali and is expected to release in summer 2018.
