Kumaraswamy says makers of Rajinikanth’s ‘Kaala’ should avoid releasing movie in Karnataka

Rajinikanth’s Kaala will release on June 7

The Cauvery river water issue, that has for generations defined relations between the two states, has taken another turn with the formation of the contentious Cauvery Management Authority (CMA), a body set up to implement the tribunal's 2007 order on water sharing. He, however, added that as the head of the state, he will implement the direction of the High Court and ensure the safe release of the film by providing protection to theatres.

The court asked for a list of screens where the film is being released so that security can be arranged. This is not good for Karnataka.

After the Karnataka High Court directed the state government to provide the necessary security for peaceful release of superstar Rajinikanth-starrer "Kaala", Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy suggested that the film's release should be deferred as the atmosphere in the state is not conducive. As many as ten letters from various pro-Kannada groups have reached the Film Chamber, demanding a ban on Kaala in Karnataka. "A chamber of commerce should facilitate the release of a film and not prevent it", Rajinikanth said.

He also said that if the movie does not release in Karnataka on the day of it is released everywhere else, it would be detrimental to the image of the state. Kumaraswamy said he was talking from experience.

"Some people in Karnataka are opposing the release of Kaala and I want to tell them very clearly that my statements on Cauvery were a mere reiteration of what the Supreme Court had said", Rajinikanth said, according to Deccan Herald.

"As per High Court directions, elaborate police security arrangements would be made at theaters where Kaala film releases".
