Later, Rajinikanth himself is shown explaining that black is the colour of hard work. The actor is seen speaking in the Tirunelveli slang of the Tamil language.
Actor Dhanush, also Rajinikant's son-in-law, has produced the movie under his banner Wunderbar Films Pvt Ltd.
Pa Ranjith is the director of the film, his second association with Rajinikanth after their 2016 gangster flick 'Kabali'.
Dhanush released the teaser on his Twitter page today. 'Kaala' will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
Besides Rajinikanth and Patekar, the movie also features Hindi cinema actor Huma Qureshi, actor-director Samudrakani, Eswari Rao and a host of others.
Ranjith's favourite musician, Santosh Narayanan has once again teamed up with the filmmaker to compose the musical score for the film.
