Well, Kaala caught up in controversy a few days ago over Rajinikanth’s statement on Cauvery water issue. Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce decided that Rajinikanth’s film Kaala will be banned in Karnataka. Rajinikanth in his statement said that whichever government comes to power in Karnataka should implement the Supreme Court order about Cauvery water sharing and this is the reason why the KFCC has decided to ban the film there.
Kaala is said to be a documented story of a don living in the slums of Dharavi. He will play a slum lord turned gangster in the film and is reportedly based on the life of Haji Mastan. The film will also have political overtones.
The film also stars Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar and Pankaj Tripathi.
Kaala releases on June 7!
