Kaala is directed by Pa Ranjith and it has a huge star cast including Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Samuthirakani, Pankaj Tripathi among others. Vishal has said the TPFC was exploring other alternative options to help the films to resume their outdoor shooting. FEFSI went on strike demanding wage revision and against the decision of TFPC to hire workers of their choice and not source those owing allegiance to the former. It has music by Santhosh Narayanan and is bankrolled by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films.
