'Kaala' banned in Karnataka: Kumaraswamy says,'Kannadigas have rejected actor's film'
Reacting to the ban on Superstar Rajinikanth's Kaala movie, CM HD Kumaraswamy said that the Kannadigas have rejected the actor's film. He added he will hold a meeting and take a decision on the same.
The film star has often faced the wrath of pro-Kannada organisations for his comments on Cauvery issue. The actor has a great fan following in Karnataka, especially Bengaluru and Kolar where there is a sizable Tamil population.
On Tuesday, the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) decided not to allow screening of his movie 'Kaala', due for release on June 7. The chamber also said that Rajinikanth's statement on Cauvery has reportedly hurt the sentiments of Kannadigas.
Directed by Pa Ranjith, 'Kaala' is one of the biggest releases in Tamil and is scheduled to release worldwide on June 7. Produced by Wunderbar Films, the film also stars Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar, Eswari Rao, Samuthirakani and Anjali Patil in important roles.
