Director Pa Ranjith has confirmed that a Chinese actor is playing an important role in Kabali which goes on floors today. The latest addition to the supporting cast is Ritwika of Madras fame. “Rajini sir told me that this is the first time he is reading a full script. I gave a 220 page script and thought he will at least take a week to complete reading it. He surprised me and called the very next day after reading it. He said ‘Blood Stone’ was the last film when he read the full script,” says Ranjith.
“He suggested his thoughts on the interval block and even enacted some crucial scenes in the film with dialogues. I was stunned by his sincerity. He already started absorbing the character of Kabali. When I told him that his character can sport his real-life full-on white beard, he nodded and started growing it,” says Ranjith.
