  • Karnataka must provide security for Kaala: High Court

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".

Despite the uncertainty in Karnataka, Rajinikanth's much-awaited gangster drama Kaala Karikaalan has already earned a massive Rs. 230 crore from theatrical and music rights, reports Hindustan Times. The leading multiplex players in Chennai city, SPI Cinemas, said that they have sold almost 1 lakh tickets in their properties, on the eve of the film's release. He requested that the government should provide security for the film's release.

Many pro-Kannada groups are protesting against the release of the film in the state due to the comments made by Rajinikanth regarding the Cauvery dispute.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to block the release of Rajinikanth starrer Tamil film Kaala saying that it can not put on hold the screening just a day ahead of its release. But with the ongoing protests, it is not clear if the film will have a peaceful screening in the state.


The Karnataka Chief Minister Kumaraswamy has bowled a googly stating that as the CM he is bound to listen to the High Court and provide protection to theaters screening "Kaala" but as an individual his feeling is that the film should not be released as it could cause trouble for the people. "I had demanded Cauvery Management Board to be formed and all dams should come under its control and this is what the court also said". The court was told that there was threat to the film's release.

Earlier, Karnataka High Court asked the government to give protection to the theatres which are releasing the film.

On 6 June morning, just before taking off to Siliguri for the shoot of his upcoming film with Karthik Subbaraj, Rajinikanth told the media in Chennai, "I understand the situation that Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy is facing".

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