  • Kaala movie Facebook live

The Karnataka high court had on June 5 directed the state government to provide necessary security for the peaceful release of "Kaala", which pro-Kannada outfits had threatened to stall over the actor's reported remarks on the Cauvery row.

Sources at Chennai theatres say the film has found pre-bookings only for two days, which is extremely unusual for a Rajinikanth film. However, actor-activist Vishal Krishna who heads the Tamil Nadu Films Producers' Council (TFPC) offered a quote saying it's too early to make any predictions."The opening of Kaala may be on the lower side, because his last film with the same director (Pa. Ranjith) had not been appreciated that much", he said. It might take another Superstar film to beat this remarkable feat. "The list of theatres will later be sent to the police commissioner to ensure security at these theatres", Srinivas said.

"This may be due to some of the factors like couple of postponements in release date, Ramzan period, particularly the week before Eid which is dullest for business, as next Friday the big film of Salman Khan releases". Kaala's release seemingly more impacted by politics than even Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat, that was released after the Supreme Court's directions.

The county managing director Wil Okabe said his own vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots was also threatened. The lava flow has covered about 7.7 square miles of the island, according to the USGS .

"We are telling them that the issue of sharing Cauvery water is more important than the film", he said. But after 1 pm, Inox at Mantri Square and PVR at Orion had multiple shows of the film. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake. Nadar moved to Mumbai in 1956 and was a leader for a section of Tamils settled in the slums of Dharavi.

Protestors held demonstrations outside theatres in Bengaluru asking fans to not watch the show.

"Kaala has been unnecessarily embroiled in the Cauvery controversy". Rajinikanth said that it was not right to oppose the film for his political views on the Cauvery river water dispute. Memes, fans imitating the superstar, videos have taken over social media.
