Karnataka HC clears decks for release of Rajinikanth's 'Kaala' in state

Karnataka must provide security for Kaala: High Court Supreme Court refuses to stay release of Rajinikanth-starrer ‘Kaala’

He also added: "Please don't think we are hell-bent on releasing the film only in Karnataka, it is going to open in theatres across the world and if the movie is not released only in Karnataka it would not be good for the state".

Reports say that the film will now release in about 130 theatres in Karnataka. "Everybody is waiting for the film to be released", the bench told the counsel appearing for the petitioner. The pro-Kannada parties held dharnas in front of a few multiplexes and also burnt posters of the film in Bengaluru. There were rumours doing the rounds that Rockline Venkatesh had come forward to release the flick following Rajinikanth's request.

Miffed with Rajinikanth's reported comments that whichever government comes to power in Karnataka should implement the Supreme Court order on Cauvery water sharing in toto, the KFCC on May 29 decided not to allow screening of "Kaala". "How many days can the government provide security?" a spokesperson of a leading single-screen theatre told us on the condition of anonymity.

They moved court as some pro-Kannada organisations and Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce submitted a representation to Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy seeking ban of movie over Rajnikanth's views about Cauvery verdict by Supreme Court.

The actor said, "Some people are opposing the release of my movie". "You want an injunction against the release of the movie".


In his message, Rajinikanth said, "I understand HD Kumaraswamy's situation".

The film ran into trouble in Karnataka due to the lead actor Rajinikanth's statements about the Cauvery water crisis. The high court is likely to take up the matter for discussion on Tuesday.

Kaala marks Rajinikanth's return to the big screen after two years.

Now for the movie to be declared a hit, it needs another Rs. 280 crore, which looks quite possible for the movie, considering how the megastar's last film "Kabali" collected Rs. 650 crore worldwide, with Rs. 259 overseas business.
