‘Kaala’: Rajinikanth-starrer to finally release in Karnataka

The 67-year-old Tamil superstar made a fervent appeal in Kannada to various stakeholders for the screening of the action film across the state a day before the release. 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.

The tepid response has led to growing doubts about Rajinikanth's prospects in Tamil Nadu politics, given that Kaala is his first film after he jumped into the political arena.

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. "The list of theatres will later be sent to the police commissioner to ensure security at these theatres", Srinivas said.

"I have not been following Kaala release or its prospects, but I would imagine, 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", he said.

"This is HUGE! #Kaala is the FIRST ever Indian film to be released in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia!", Wunderbar Fims, the production company owned by actor Dhanush and his wife Aishwarya said on Twitter. Our honour and Kannada pride are at stake.

Curiosity finds ancient organic molecules on Mars
The release of methane is an active process on Mars, which could suggest new things about what's unfolding on the Red Planet. Earlier tests may have hinted at organics, but the presence of chlorine in martian dirt complicated those interpretations .

"It is also unfortunate that even the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC), which promotes Kannada films and supports the fraternity, is preventing "Kaala" by siding with protestors and denying Rajinikanth fans their fundamental right to watch his movie".

Nana Patekar plays the role of villain.

But there were fans who took a different view.

Rajinikanth's film releases are nothing short of a celebration. In fact, the Chief Minister of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy also went on the record saying that it was not advisable to release "Kaala" in the state following stiff protests.
