Rajinikanth’s much-awaited gangster film Kaala Kaarikalan is all set for a June 7 release and as we enter May tomorrow, the makers of the film are kick-starting the promotions. As a surprise for all Superstar’s fans, the first single from Kaala titled Semma Weightu, will be released in May 1 (May Day) at 7 pm. The announcement was made by actor-filmmaker Dhanush, who us not just Rajinikanth’s son-in-law but also the producer of the film. Through a tweet, he disclosed, “A surprise to Superstar fans. #kaala 1st single #semmaweightu will be released tom evening at 7 pm. #rajinism #thalaivar @Music_Santhosh @beemji @vinod_offl @humasqureshi.”
Music director Santhosh Narayanan, who has scored music for Kaala, also shared the news on social media and said, “Very excited to present to you all the single #semmaweightu from #kaala from tomorrow at 7pm. You have all been a part of the song by giving me amazing inputs and interests. Thank you! @dhanushkraja @rajinikanth @beemji @humasqureshi @vinod_offl(sic).” He had earlier revealed he has recorded a million voices for a song in the film. Through a tweet that came a few hours before Dhanush shared the news about Kaala song Semma Weightu, Santosh said, “I have always had this dream of recording a million voices in a song & have the perfect opportunity in a song from #kaala. It would be a great honour recording people from all walks of life. We are so excited and will update details very shortly.Peace! #kaala1million(sic).”

While the song will be out tomorrow, the entire Kaala album will be launched at a grand event in Chennai on May 9. Kaala is directed by Pa Ranjith, who had earlier directed Thalaiva in Kabali in 2016. He had presented the megastar as a stylish don and this time again, we might see something amazing as Rajni dons the garb of a Mumbai-based gangster. There were rumours that his character is inspired by Haji Mastaan, but the makers have denied it all and said it is purely a fictional character.
