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

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

"Everybody is waiting for the film to be released", the bench told the petitioner's counsel.

As directed by the Karnataka High Court on Tuesday, the state government deployed adequate police personnel at the theatres and multiplexes for the protection of fans and safety of public property after the activists urged distributors and exhibitors to avoid screening the film.

Rough estimates say that for Rajinikanth's last film, Kabali, the film was released in more than 300 screens and each screen averaged a take of more than Rs 2 lakh a day.

Protests hindered the screening of actor Rajinikanth's film Kaala in Karnataka on the day of its worldwide release, PTI reported on Thursday.

Nadal continues French Open march
The 36-year-old Williams set up that showdown by making only three unforced errors in the opening set against Goerges, 12 in all. Sloane Stephens advanced too, but the 10th-seeded American had a much more hard time beating Italy's Camila Giorgi 4-6 6-1 8-6.

Meanwhile, theatres in Karnataka are avoiding screening "Kaala", amid protests. Let's not forget, this is the Ramzan week and a sizable chunk of the audience likes to refrain from watching films during this period even if it is Rajini Sir's film.

"Cauvery water is more important than a Rajinikanth film for us". While fans are enjoying the release of the much awaited movie, here's another reason to celebrate. "I would imagine, (given) the socio-political stand Rajini Sir has taken in the past one year, people might have started looking at him differently from the demi-god that he used to be", said Pookutty.

The film will hit the theatres in Karnataka, where pro-Kannada groups have been agitating against it, in protest against the actor-turned-politician's remarks on the Cauvery river water dispute. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake.

Many fans who bought the tickets online for the show on Wednesday were disappointed as they could not watch their favourite superstar's film. "We will not allow Tamil films to run".
