Much-awaited Rajinikanth release Kaala has already hit the theatres and how. Praises applaud, and wishes have already started pouring in for the phenomenal work of the actors and filmmakers. The movie is even heading the trends at places where it has not even seen the daylight in theaters, and why not when we have superstar Rajinikanth playing a negative role with such hero-like personality. Kaala is based in the backdrop of Mumbai's Dharavi and is a gangster flick.
While the world is going crazy over Rajnikanth starrer Kaala, we bring you 5 things you probably didn’t know about the much-anticipated movie.
Kaala set was one of the biggest among biggies
The set, according to the makers was 1-1.5kms long. Pete Draper, who looked after the VFX of the movie, hoped that the audience would not be able to tell the difference between the real world and computer-generated imagery (CGI). Makuta co-founder and CEO, Draper, has worked in big blockbusters Eega, Ghajini, Magadheera, Endhiran, and Baahubali.
