Rajinikanth starrer Kaala is gearing up for release on June 7th, 2018 worldwide in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Directed by Pa Ranjith, Kaala is said to be an action entertainer and will have Rajinikanth playing a slum lord turned gangster in the plot. The makers have been promoting the film aggressively however the release might not happen in one state – Karnataka. The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce has put a stall on the release of Kaala in the state because they are upset with the statement of Rajinikanth regarding the Cauvery River Water Management Board. Rajinikanth had said that the government of both the states should implement the judgement given by Supreme Court in the Cauvery Water Issue.
Rajinikanth, however, hopes that the issue would be resolved amicably and the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce would intervene into the matter. Rajinikanth’s colleagues and admirers have been supporting the superstar in this cause and stating both the issues are different and shouldn’t be interlinked.
Earlier in the day, actor and TFPC President Vishal defended Rajinikanth and said that the release does happen in Karnataka. Vishal took to Twitter and wrote – “Wat Rajini sir spoke bout Cauvery issue is called responsibility n freedom of speech.how cn they stop #kaala release n Karnataka in retaliation.i sincerely hope the Karnataka film chamber and fellow brothers resolve this issue.we all r Indians eventually.gb “
Kaala has a stellar star cast with few big names from Bollywood including Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi and Pankaj Tripathi. Eswari Devi will be seen playing the role of Rajinikanth’s wife in Kaala while actor and filmmaker Samuthirakani will be seen playing an important role. Marathi and Bollywood actor Anjali Patil too would be seen playing a pivotal role in Kaala. Kaala is being produced by Dhanush under his home banner Wunderbar Films.
