Actor Panjak Tripathi, who will next be seen in Kaala, starring Rajinikanth, says the star would ensure that he ate on time and regularly checked up on him when they shot for the movie together.

Tripathi plays a policeman in the project, which will also mark his debut in Tamil cinema.

"My experience of shooting with Rajini sir has been amazing. He is a very humble man who used to check on me and ensure I ate on time. We have had conversations about acting, about spirituality and the film industry. When he is in front of the camera, he takes on a different persona. I learnt a lot from this experience," Tripathi said in a statement.

"I knew I needed to be part of a film where I share screen space with someone of his calibre. The minute the offer came, I said 'yes' and I am delighted that I did," he added.

The gangster film has been written and directed by Pa Ranjith, and also features Nana Patekar and Huma Qureshi among others.
