We had earlier reported that a huge supporting cast of 24 reputed actors from all across India has been roped in for Rajinikanth and Director Pa. Ranjith’s Kaala, including bug names like Huma Qureshi and Nana Patekar. And while it was confirmed that Huma would be paired opposite Rajini as his romantic interest, everyone wondered what role veteran actor and performer par excellence, Nana Patekar, would be essaying.
Well, the cat is finally out of the bag. Sources close to the production have revealed that Nana is the film’s lead villain – he plays a corrupt and scheming politician who continually hampers the welfare of Tamil immigrants in Mumbai, which puts him at direct crossroads with Rajini’s character.
Thalaivar vs. Nana – this is going to be one for the ages.
