‘Kaala’: Rajinikanth-starrer to finally release in Karnataka

Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday appealed to the distributor of the film to defer the release of the movie.

In Karnataka, the release was dampened as several outfits held protests against the film. A morning show in Lido Mall on MG Road had to be cancelled and money was refunded to all customers.

Activist Vatal Nagaraj told NDTV, "Kaala must not run. But we hope they have some great story to be shared which may be liked and the film does well", said Mohan.

Meanwhile, theatres in Karnataka are avoiding screening "Kaala", amid protests. "How can we stop the release?" the bench said. But the state did stick to the letter of the law.

According to reports, round 300 police personnel have been deployed near town hall to avoid untoward incidents.

Thalaiva Rajinikanth's latest flick 'Kaala' hit the theatres today amid protest in Karnataka and while fans are queuing up outside cinemas since the wee hours of the morning, a piracy website Tamilrockers has leaked the film online, reported the Indian Express. From flocking the theatre screens all across the country for the first show on the first date, the frenzy among the fans has proved to be a huge advantage for the filmmakers. "So we will be happy if it is there". However, in Mangaluru there were no protests and the number of single screens was increased to three by Thursday evening. "I would imagine, (given) the socio-political stand Rajini Sir has taken in the past one year, people might have started looking at him differently from the demi-god that he used to be", said Pookutty. "We are really big fans of Rajinikanth but especially when it comes to the language and Cauvery river.We are fighting for our rights".
