Karnataka: Protests hinder screening of Rajinikanth’s film ‘Kaala’

Protests hindered the screening of actor Rajinikanth's film Kaala in Karnataka on the day of its global release, PTI reported on Thursday.

"Kaala", which is facing massive protest in Karnataka by pro-Kannada activists, created history by becoming the first Indian film to be screened in deeply conservative country after the return of cinema. According to recent reports, it looks like "Kaala" is finally hitting the screens in Karnataka from today. While in the morning, scores of protesters were detained by the police, around 2 pm the movie was screened in Orion Mall in Rajajinagar.

But in a release, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said the committee is cooperating with the department. "Normally I don't comment on briefings, let me say it this: I think Chairman Gowdy's initial assessment is accurate".

Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy seemed to tacitly support the protest with his statement requesting distributors and exhibitors not to show the film.

One fan told NDTV, "We are all fans of Rajinikanth and we love to watch his movies here in Bengaluru". The expected hype about a Rajini movie was said to be lukewarm even in Chennai, the hotbed of Rajini fan clubs, and also in other centres where he is traditionally known to have a strong following. "I would imagine, (given) 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", said Pookutty. Kabali is said to have earned more than 10 crores in Karnataka alone. The verdict was this is more of a Ranjith film than a Rajinikanth film. Several pro-Kannada groups have also warned theatres not to screen the film if they want to avoid any untoward incident.
