Karnataka: Protests hinder screening of Rajinikanth’s film ‘Kaala’
Much to the disappointment of ardent fans, theatres have not screened the film. A morning show in Lido Mall on MG Road had to be cancelled and money was refunded to all customers.
Rajinikanth-starrer film "Kaala" on Thursday became the first ever Indian film to release in Saudi Arabia after theatres were opened in the conservative country in April after 35 years hiatus. Rajinikanth's film must not run. The police took dozens of protesters including their leader Vatal Nagaraj into custody. "There is no pressure to get tickets for the film throughout Tamil Nadu", said independent trade analyst Sreedhar Pillai, comparing Kaala, in which Rajinikanth plays a Mumbai don to his last release, Kabali. "How can we stop the release?" the bench said.
Most theatres in Bengaluru also chose to heed to the call made by pro-Kannada organisations and Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, asking distributors and theatre owners not to release the movie.
Hundreds of fans and cinemagoers had reached theatres early in the morning, assuming that the movie would be screened after the high court order. "Depending on the demand, we will increase the number of shows". His recently released movie Kaala has grabbed the attention in Southern India, North India, USA and other places where Indian are to be found.

One man outside Orion Mall said, "If even today he gives a report that I am not supporting this, we the Kannadigas will support Rajinikanth".
Kaala has reportedly not been released in any of the theaters in Bangalore yet.
Rajinikanth has number of die hard fans as he is popular at worldwide level.
Part of this may also have to do with Rajinikanth's recent mixed record at the box office - apart from Kabali, Rajinikanth's last two releases, Lingaa and Kochadaiiyaan, didn't set the cash registers ringing either, earning Rs 149 crore and Rs 70 crore, respectively.
