Thank you dear @rajinikanth , @dhanushkraja and @beemji for giving me all the space to express myself musically," composer Narayanan had written on Twitter on April 20, helping raise expectations.

Kaala was scheduled for an April 27 release but it was postponed to June 7 due to a recently-concluded strike in Kollywood — Tamil film industry.

Notably, Kabali, unlike many other Rajinikanth films, had a low key audio launch. Nonetheless, Rajinikanth is expected to be back in time from his two-week trip to the United States for Kaala's music release.

Kaala marks the second union between Rajinikanth and Ranjith after Kabali. The film's teaser trailer, which was launched in March took the internet by storm as it became a rage among Tamil cinema fans.

The upcoming film also has a stellar cast, which includes the likes of Marathi great Nana Patekar, Bollywood actor Huma Qureshi among others.
