Karnataka: Protests hinder screening of Rajinikanth’s film ‘Kaala’

Agitators outside theatres were seen requesting the moviegoers not to watch the movie. Tweets also suggest that the film was uploaded at 5.28 am in the morning with many fans asking producers to take strict action against Tamilrockers.

Superstar Aamir Khan says he is a huge fan of Tamil megastar Rajinikanth and can not wait to watch his latest release "Kaala".

Kaala which recorded one of the lowest advance bookings for a Rajinikanth movie, is the first film after the 67-year old announced his political entry on 31 December, last year.

Barring the state, the film released worldwide today amid much fanfare.

As Kamala Cinemas claimed that they were forced by the distributors to sell tickets for a higher price as against the government norms, Wunderbar Films that has produced the film, responded on Twitter, "Kamala & Udhayam theaters have not expressed their consent to the similar terms that's been agreed by other cinemas". Now that the film has released all are excited. Pa Ranjith has directed this film. "But I would like to act with Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan", the perfectionist had said.


Pro-Kannada workers protest outside Balaji theatre in Bengaluru where Rajinikanth's movie Kaala is screening, on June 7, 2018. The film is facing a "ban" in the state over Rajinikanth's remarks on the controversial issue of sharing of Cauvery river water between the neighbouring states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

Hundreds of activists of pro-Kannada organisations, including the KRV, gathered outside theatres and multiplexes in Bengaluru, Mysuru, Hubballi, Mangaluru, Ballari and Belagavi to protest against the film's release."Cauvery water is more important than a Rajinikanth film for us".

Aamir and Rajinikanth have featured together in the 1995 film "Aatank Hi Aatank".

Rajinikanth's Kaala has got a good opening at the Tamil Nadu box office.
