Why are films getting caught up in political battles?
Sources at Chennai theatres say the film has found pre-bookings only for two days, which is extremely unusual for a Rajinikanth film.
The film, however, will have its full-fledged release in the state on Friday, The New Indian Express reported.
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. "The promos of Kaala haven't established a connect with Hindi audiences".
"We are telling them that the issue of sharing Cauvery water is more important than the film", he said.
Here are your official petrol prices for June
A report by the competition watchdog has found Darwin motorists are spending 10 cents more than they should per litre of petrol. Lower global crude oil cost, along with a strengthened rupee, has pulled down the prices of fuels since May 30.
On Wednesday, the Madras high court refused to stay the release of Kaala based on a plea that claimed that the film projected Thiraviyam Nadar and his family in bad light.
"Kaala has to compete with a Steven Spielberg franchise Jurassic World which is a huge event. But I would like to act with Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan", the perfectionist had said.
Yesterday, the Karnataka High Court had asked the state to provide security to the theatres screening the film.
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.
Pro-Kannada workers protest outside Balaji theatre in Bengaluru where Rajinikanth's movie Kaala is screening, on June 7, 2018. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake. The movie directed by Pa Ranjith also stars Nana Patekar and Huma Qureshi.
Upset with Rajinikanth's statement over the Cauvery row, a Karnataka film body banned the release of the film earlier this month.
