Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala has released worldwide today and is receiving a huge response. The film has opened to a roaring response and the same is expected to reflect at the Box Office. Well, the film has added another achievement to the list as Kaala becomes the first ever Indian film to release in Saudi Arabia. The movie theatres were opened in April after a long hiatus of three and a half decades after they were shut down in the early 1980s.
After the movie theatres saw the daylight, the first movie that was screened in the Middle Eastern country was American superhero flick Black Panther. Now, Kaala becomes another fortunate film to witness the release in Saudi Arabia.
Wunderbar Films, the producers of Kaala, posted on their Twitter handle, “This is HUGE! #Kaala is the FIRST ever Indian film to be released in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia!”

Meanwhile, amid controversy and a lot more, Kaala has released in India in Tamil and Telugu. Despite heavy rains, fans didn’t let their excitement down and made sure to watch the film. Fans gathered early in the morning to catch first-day first show.
Kaala has been facing opposition in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. However, fans of Rajinikanth celebrated the release of “Kaala” in Tamil Nadu on Thursday.
In Karnataka, the film’s release was opposed by some organisations after the southern superstar said the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) on the sharing of the Cauvery river water between Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Puducherry, has to be set up.
Directed by Pa Ranjith, Kaala also stars Eswari Rao, Samuthirakani, Huma Qureshi, Sampath Raj, Sayaji Shinde, Anjali Patil, Manikandan, Dileepan, Pankaj Tripathi, Ravi Kale, Ramesh Thilak, Arul Doss, Aravind Akash, Sakshi Agarwal, Arundhati, Suganya and Nithish.
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.
