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

Rajinikanth asked what was wrong with his comments on the Cauvery water dispute, and said he only wanted the Supreme Court order to be implemented.

Actor-politician Rajinikanth, whose upcoming movie "Kaala" is facing stiff opposition from pro-Kannada activists, has appealed to Karnataka Chief Minitser H D Kumaraswamy, asking for security at theatres where the movie will be screened.

Kumaraswamy said, "It is the government's duty to respect the high court's orders". The Additional Advocate General, Shivanna, told the court that the government has not received a list of theatres, dates and other details of release for it to take action. This is not good for Karnataka.

Superstar Rajinikanth's "Kaala" directed by Pa. Ranjith and produced by Dhanush's Wunderbar Films is releasing day after tomorrow the 7th June and already the advance booking is getting filled up like hot cakes for the four day weekend.

As head of K'taka govt, I have to implement the direction of High Court, it's my responsibility. Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) had said earlier. Kumaraswamy said he was talking from experience.

"As a government we will take all necessary measures, but if some organisations protest and because of this people don't turn up, under such circumstances, and when they don't allow our movies to be released, I feel they should not release the movie", Kumaraswamy said. "After there is a solution to this (Cauvery) water issue, then they can release anytime", he said.

The petitioner has approached the apex court against the May 16 order of the Madras High Court which has posted his plea against the release of the movie for hearing on June 16.
