Rajinikanth's Kaala to be released ahead of 2.0, to hit the screens on 27 April

It's official! Superstar Rajinikanth's next film with director Pa Ranjith, Kaala, will hit the screens on 27 April.
For a long time now there was speculation whether Kaala would be released ahead of Rajini's much awaited other film in the pipeline, 2.0, which is being directed by Shankar.
A section of the media had even gone on to predict the release dates of both films.
However, it seems that Kaala will be released first on 27 April. The sci-fi thriller 2.0, which is a sequel to Endhiran (2010), or Robot in Hindi, and which is being made at a rumoured cost of Rs450 crore, will hit the screens much later as the CG work needs more time.
Apart from Rajinikanth, Kaala features Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar, Anjali Patil, Sukanya and Samuthirakani in important roles. The film, in which Rajini plays a gangster from Mumbai, has music by Santosh Narayanan.
Actor Dhanush's Wunderbar Productions, which is producing this film, made the announcement on Twitter.
