Bollywood actor Huma Qureshi, who makes her Tamil debut with upcoming film Kaala, says she is slowly becoming the character she essays in the Rajinikanth-starrer. In the film, she plays a Muslim character called Zareena.
“Prep mode on Kaala. Slowly becoming Zareena. Working hard. Blessed,” Huma Qureshi had tweeted on Thursday. The film’s first schedule will be shot in Mumbai for 40 days. The makers have constructed a set of Mumbai’s Dharavi slum in Chennai where the next schedule will happen.
Rajinikanth, once again, plays a gangster in Kaala but this time he is not wearing a tuxedo. The 66-year-old actor will be seen sporting traditional Tamil Nadu attire — veshti and a kurta — in the film. However, he has kept his salt and pepper beard and hairstyle from Kabali. The majority of the film will be shot in the backdrop of Dharavi, which is a home for the largest Tamil speaking population in Mumbai.
