The month-long Mumbai schedule of
superstar Rajinikanth's Tamil gangster drama "Kaala" will be wrapped up
on Thursday, a source said.
"The Mumbai portion will be wrapped up on Thursday. The team will next head to Chennai where they will shoot in the replica of Dharavi slum set, which was constructed on a whopping budget, a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Being directed by Pa. Ranjith, the film also stars Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil, Samuthirakani and Pankaj Tripathi.
Elaborating on the Mumbai schedule, the source said: "Most of the Mumbai portion was shot outdoors and the team had a tough time managing the crowd. They were always at the risk of a shot or pictures from the shoot being leaked."
The project marks the second time collaboration of Ranjith and Rajinikanth after last year's "Kabali".
Veteran actor Nana Patekar, who will be seen as a ruthless, conniving politician, plays the antagonist.
Being bankrolled by Dhanush, the film has music by Santhosh Narayanan.
