Meanwhile, '2.O', the sequel to Rajinikanth's 'Enthiran' (first slated for a Diwali 2017 release), was speculated to release in April. According to reliable sources, the CG works of the Shankar-directorial was taking more time than expected, pushing the release date of the film to the latter half of 2018, thereby leaving the slot open for 'Kaala'.

Kaala is Rajinikanth's second collaboration with director Ranjith. The duo came together last in 2016 for the blockbuster hit 'Kabali'.
