'Kaala' records lowest ever opening for Rajinikanth film

Amidst Controversy in Karnataka SC Refuses to Stay Release of 'Kaala'

Meanwhile, the initial reports for the Rajinikanth starrer Kaala have been largely positive, with praises pouring in for Rajinikanth and Pa Ranjith.

A day after the Karnataka High Court ordered the State government to give police protection to theatres screening the film, the Madras High Court and the Supreme Court refused to stay the release of the film, which has been facing legal and political hurdles. His request came after numerous pro-Kannada outfits threatened to stall the film over Rajinikanth's reported remarks on the Cauvery row involving Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

Sources at Chennai theatres say the film has found pre-bookings only for two days, which is extremely unusual for a Rajinikanth film.

Putin: Trump and I 'regularly talk over the phone'
Asked by a young blogger whether the government had plans to shut down Instagram and YouTube, Putin insisted that it does not. Putin, 65, and his aides say it is an indispensable tool to gauge public sentiment and learn about people's real problems.

As the admirers celebrated the release of the much-awaited film by dancing to the beat of the drums, the skies too opened up to match the footsteps of Rajini lovers. 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. They are shutting by themselves and are not screening Kaala.

Superstar Rajinikanth has a huge fan following in Kerala.

But there were fans who took a different view. The Chamber stated that Rajinikanth's statement on the Cauvery issue reportedly hurt the sentiments of Kannadigas. Kabali is said to have earned more than 10 crores in Karnataka alone. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake. Besides the original Tamil version, the film has been released across the country and beyond with sub-titles in Hindi, Telugu and English. Don't be surprised if you find Aamir Khan sitting next to you in one of the theatres.
