In a first, Rajinikanth’s Kaala to get a modest launch in Karnataka

This could be largely credited to the lack of support Kaala has received from the Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce (KFCC) and the state government. But according to my observations as an individual, in this kind of atmosphere, it isn’t good on the part of producer/distributor to release the movie,” the Karnataka Chief Minister told the media. “Rajinikanth’s son-in-law (Dhanush) and his daughter (Aishwarya) have also requested the IG to provide required security to theatres where Kaala will be showed,” said a film industry source in Bengaluru. On Tuesday, pro-Kannada organizations, along with KFCC President Sara Govindu, met Kumaraswamy and advised him against allowing the release of the film in the state. The activists have refused to allow the smooth screening of Kaala even as the Karnataka High Court directed the state government to provide adequate security to the cinema houses. This is by far the most modest launch for a Rajinikanth film in the state, where he spent a majority of his life before he made it big in the Tamil film industry.

I just supported the Supreme Court order. “As the head of the Karnataka govt, I have to implement the direction of High Court, it’s my responsibility. Related News

Kumaraswamy prima facie sided with the pro-Kannada groups over their demand of banning Kaala and even questioned the filmmakers as to why it was “necessary” to release the film in such troubled times. With great confidence, I request you to support the release of my film,” he said during a brief media interaction outside his Chennai residence on Thursday.
