Cauvery row: Rajinikanth-starrer ‘Kaala’ may not release in Karnataka

By Deepika

Rajinikanth's 's highly anticipated 'Kaala' may not release in Karnataka. Pro Karnataka groups have threatened to stop Thalaiva's film release in the state.


In an interview to International Business Times, the President of Kannada Chalavali Vatal Paksha, Vatal Nagaraj, threatened the actor and his movie.

Vatal Nagaraj, "We will not allow the release of Kaala in Karnataka. Rajinikanth's stand is unacceptable to us. He is against Kannadigas. So, we won't allow the release of his film." Many other pro-Kannada groups have echoed the same views.

According to the reports, the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) is in support of the stand taken by the pro-Kannada groups.

Sa Ra Govindu, the President of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, has said that the Kannadigas are upset with Rajinikanth over his comments.

Rajinikanth had urged the new Chief Minister designate HD Kumaraswamy must do justice and uphold the apex court's order of sharing water with Tamil Nadu according to recommendations of the proposed Cauvery management board.

Rajinikanth starrer 'Kaala' is all set to hit the screens on June 7.

Kaala' has been produced by Rajinikanth's son-in-law Dhanush and directed by Pa. Ranjith. This would be Ranjith's second outing with the 67-year-old actor after their earlier gangster film, 'Kabali,' which released in 2016.

Last year, SS Rajamouli's 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion' faced a similar issue in Karnataka after some fringe groups protested against the film and asked Sathyaraj to tender an apology for his speech about Kannadigas.
