High Court Orders Protection For Screening Of Rajinikanth's Kaala In Karnataka

Rajinikanth’s Kaala will release on June 7

The pointed to be noted here is, Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce announced that theaters in the state will not be screening both Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth's films as they have spoken against the interest of Kannada people in the Cauvery issue.

Several pro-Kannada groups have threatened to stall the movie - scheduled to release on Thursday, June 7 - over Rajinikanth's remarks on the Cauvery water sharing row.

Newly elected Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday said that releasing Tamil superstar Rajinikanth-starrer film Kaala is not a good idea, given the "present atmosphere" in the state. The Additional Advocate General, Shivanna, told the court that the government has not received a list of theatres, dates and other details of release for it to take action. "The distributors and exhibitors all have to be brought together by the KFCC to ensure a film's release", he said. "That is related to the Film Chamber".




"As head of the Karnataka government, it's my responsibility to implement the judgements and directions of the High Court".

Actor-turned-politician Rajinikanth on Wednesday appealed to fans to allow his film Kaala to be released in Karnataka, Times Now reported. We don't want to interfere with its release, the apex court said while refusing to stay the release of the movie. His response comes after the Ulayanayagan refused to take up the issue with Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy during his meeting on Monday, June 4. Kumaraswamy said he was talking from experience. "After there is a solution to this (Cauvery) water issue, then they can release anytime", he said.

Stating that it was the government's duty to follow the court orders to provide security to centres screening the film, Kumaraswamy said, "in my personal opinion as a Kannadiga, in such situation where there is opposition, it is ideal if they will not release the movie".
