National Award-winning actor Samuthirakani considers sharing screen space with superstar Rajinikanth in the upcoming Tamil gangster drama Kaala as a lifetime achievement.

"When I finished the first shot with Rajini sir, I felt so proud about myself. It felt like a lifetime achievement. I have waited really long to share screen space with him," Samuthirakani told IANS news agency.

While he remains tight-lipped about his role, he is thrilled about the project.

Bankrolled by Dhanush, Kaala reunites Rajinikanth with director Pa Ranjith of Kabali fame.

In the film, Rajinikanth plays a slum lord-turned-gangster. Kaala also stars Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Pankaj Tripathi and Anjali Patil, among others.
