Rajinikanth's 'Kaala' release: Chennai fans cheer, burst crackers at dawn

The actor tweeted, "Have always been a huge Rajni fan, can't wait to watch Kaala". The Kollywood movie has been released in over 500 screens across the state, while the worldwide screen count is said to be above 2,500.

Kaala has reportedly not been released in any of the theaters in Bangalore yet.

When Rajinikanth's film hits the screens, it is nothing short a festival and Kaala is turning out to be no different. Now the chief minister of Karnataka says the release should be delayed till after the Cauvery row is resolved.

Upset over the 67-year-old actor-politician's remarks, the highest film body of Karnataka, Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce, banned the movie. "The opening of 'Kaala' may be on the lower side - I haven't found the time to check - because his last film with the same director (Pa. Ranjith) had not been appreciated that much". "But we hope they have a great story to be shared, which may be liked - and the film does well", he is quoted as saying.




"I have not been following 'Kaala' release or its prospects, but I would imagine, the socio-political stand Rajini sir has taken in the past one year people might have started looking at him differently from the demi-god that he used to be", he said. On Wednesday, Rajinikanth had appealed to Kumaraswamy to provide security at theatres that wished to screen the film. Protestors held demonstrations outside theatres in Bengaluru asking fans to not watch the show.

The state government's decision to grant permission for special shows for the first two days have also turned out to be a boon for the Rajinikanth-starrer.

From Pa Ranjith's direction to the wonderful chemistry between Rajinikanth and Eswari Rao, Kaala has been declared as a blockbuster by the fans.
