Rajinikanth’s Kaala is a story based on a Mumbai-based Gangster. While there were rumours that it is inspired by Haji Mastan’s life and times, director Pa Ranjith cleared the air and said that it is a fictitious story and character. The film was initially slated for an April 27 release date but had to be pushed due to the TFPC strike.
