No Kaala release in Karnataka, fans devastated

Kaala movie Facebook live

The actor tweeted, "Have always been a huge Rajni fan, can't wait to watch Kaala". How much this has affected the film's opening, I don't know.

Upset over the 67-year-old actor-politician's remarks, the highest film body of Karnataka, Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce, banned the movie.

The usual buzz around a Rajinikanth film was missing for Kaala till recently due to the low-key promotions.

The trade experts are of the opinion that Kaala might not register the record opening and surpass the opening-day collection of Rs 21.50 crore, set by Kabali.

Most theatres in Bengaluru also chose to heed to the call made by pro-Kannada organisations and Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, asking distributors and theatre owners not to release the movie.

For a Toronto-based sports writer, it is an odd feeling to come to Cleveland and see the home team as heavy underdogs. The Cavaliers kept him to 11 points on 3-of-16 shooting, leaving Durant to pick up the slack.

In other parts of the state, cinema hall owners in Mysore, Mandya, Raichur, Belgaum and Chikkaballapura districts did not screen the movie. "But we hope they have a great story to be shared, which may be liked - and the film does well", he is quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, theatres in Karnataka are avoiding screening "Kaala", amid protests.

Pro-Kannada workers protest outside Balaji theatre in Bengaluru where Rajinikanth's movie Kaala is screening, on June 7, 2018. "However, personally, speaking as a Kannadiga, I will say that considering the situation in the state, the makers should themselves not release the movie", he said on Tuesday. "Everybody is waiting for the film to be released", the bench told the petitioner's counsel.

Earlier, the Karnataka high court instructed the producers of the film, Wunderbar Films, to make a list of theatres where the film would be screened in the state so that adequate police protection could be ensured. The movie directed by Pa Ranjith also stars Nana Patekar and Huma Qureshi.
