On Rajini’s character in Kaala:

On its political voice:

“I see this film as a small step in creating an equal space where we respect and treat each other with humanity. The film will talk the importance of land and the politics around it. It is a film that has politics but isn’t political”

On the inspiration for Karikaalan:

“Kaala is completely fictional. It has been written based on the research done about the lifestyle and living conditions there.”
