Kaala movie Facebook live

Rajinikanth starrer "Kaala" was not released in Bengaluru and other parts of the state amidst protest by Pro-Kannada organizations on Thursday.

Pro-Kannada organisations had protested against the release of the film after Rajinikanth's comments on the sharing of Cauvery waters - always a troublesome issue between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

Armed with the recent High Court order directing the government "to take adequate steps to ensure a peaceful atmosphere for the screening of the film", Karnataka's film distributors have made a decision to go ahead with the release.

One fan told NDTV, "We are all fans of Rajinikanth and we love to watch his movies here in Bengaluru".


"The situation is under control and there is no problem in showing the film after the police took away the protesters from the theatres and multiplexes to avoid any untoward incident", the Urvashi theatre owner said. "The tedious process is happening at the last minute". "We called for a ban after his statements on Cauvery".

Kaala has reportedly not been released in any of the theaters in Bangalore yet.

The film will hit the theatres in Karnataka, where pro-Kannada groups have been agitating against it, in protest against the actor-turned-politician's remarks on the Cauvery river water dispute. Don't be surprised if you find Aamir Khan sitting next to you in one of the theatres. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake.

Nana Patekar plays the role of villain.


Sources at Chennai theatres say the film has found pre-bookings only for two days, which is extremely unusual for a Rajinikanth film. Kabali is said to have earned more than 10 crores in Karnataka alone. Nadar moved to Mumbai in 1956 and was a leader for a section of Tamils settled in the slums of Dharavi.

For now, the director didn't think of a new movie with Rajinikanth.

"Kaala has been unnecessarily embroiled in the Cauvery controversy". Memes, fans imitating the superstar, videos have taken over social media.
