Rajnikanth plays a slum dweller from Mumbai in the upcoming Tamil film Kaala Karikaalan. It is also the next collaboration of Paa Ranjith and Rajinikanth, after Kabali. The latest we got to know is that Mammootty might just play a cameo in the film, as Dr Amdedkar!
The reasons for the speculation is rather convoluted, but it goes thus: In the film’s poster, the jeep on which Rajinikanth is seen has a registration number which says BR 1956. The film being directed by Pa Ranjith, it has every chance of being linked to Dr BR Ambedkar, who died in the year 1956. And rumours go that there is none better than Mammootty to play the social reformer, having done the role in an earlier film on Ambedkar.
