Last week Rajinikanth's Kaala teaser created quite a buzz among Rajini fans and another treat was to see Nana Patekar in it. The trailer opens with Nana seen playing a politician, a character with shades of grey. Both the actors Rajinikanth and Nana Patekar are pitted against each other in the film as the latter plays antagonist in the film. But it wasn't an easy catch to get both the actors in same frame as Nana Patekar had initially refused to do the film as he was not sure of playing a negative character. And it was only Rajinikanth who could convince him for the film.
Nana Patekar told a tabloid, "He said that no one was going to look at him. It was a sweet gesture. When he narrated the role to me, I told him that I wouldn't do the movie because I wasn't sure about playing an antagonist. But I did it only for him."
Kaala that releases on April 27 is directed by Pa Ranjith and also stars Huma Qureshi, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil and Samuthirakani in pivotal role. The film sees Rajinikanth play a slum lord turned gangster. Nana Patekar completed dubbing for the film last week.
