Actress Anjali Patil says she signed the upcoming Tamil film Kaala to feel the sheer enthusiasm of being part of a Rajinikanth film.

She plays a pivotal role in the film, which is being directed by Pa Ranjith.

"When I signed the project, I knew this is not the film where I'd get to prove my mettle. I signed it to feel the sheer enthusiasm of what it means to be a part of a Rajinikanth film. I wanted to experience what it's like to be around this legend," Anjali told IANS.

Talking about the experience of working alongside the superstar, she said it was like being part of a fairy tale.

"He's the epitome of goodness. You see such people only in a fairy tale. He's so good to everybody around him," she said, adding that the experience of being part of the Tamil industry was very different.

The film marks Patil's Tamil debut.

"The working culture is so different. I found it difficult to cope initially. But it was a great learning experience being part of this project. Each day on the set, there were over 500 people watching the shoot. It was overwhelming to shoot amidst so many people," she said.

In Kaala, Rajinikanth plays a slum lord turned gangster who fights for oppressed Tamils in Mumbai.

The film, which is being bankrolled by Dhanush, also stars Nana Patekar, Pankaj Tripathi, Huma Qureshi and Samuthirakani.
