Kaala is releasing this year on 27th April. Produced by Dhanush, it is a bilingual film, made in Hindi and Tamil. It is also being dubbed in Telugu. Rajnikanth will play a gangster in this movie, which will be the Robin Hood for slum people. The distribution rights for this movie have already been sold to LYCA, who is also producing Rajnikanth’s mega-budget project, 2.0 this year. The producers are finding it difficult to sell their Telugu rights.
The reason for the same is stiff competition faced by the movie. A lot of movies are releasing on 27th April alongside Kaala. And some of them are of popular Telugu actors. Even though Rajnikanth has a huge fan base in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, yet the distributors there are wary of recovering the costs if they purchase the movie on a high budget.

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, which was scheduled to release on 4th May, is now releasing on 27th April.
