Rajinikanth's Kaala earns Rs 230 crore ahead of release

The Karnataka High Court had yesterday directed the state government to provide necessary security for peaceful release of "Kaala", which pro-Kannada outfits had threatened to stall over the actor's reported remarks on the Cauvery row.

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth today sought the cooperation of the people of neighbouring Karnataka for the smooth release of his movie "Kaala", which is set to hit the screens tomorrow. Photos from the incident are doing the rounds of social media.

While the superstar is struggling to get a release for the film in Karnataka, the producers have already raked in moolah for Rajinikanth film.

The report assigns a box-office target of Rs. 280 crore (excluding the Karnataka release) for Kaala to become a blockbuster, which looks like a no-brainer for a major Rajini-starrer. "However, the concerned distributors should provide complete details about theatres and multiplexes where the film would be released", said City Police Commissioner T Suneel Kumar.

As per andhraboxoffice.com, 'Kaala' has earned Rs 60 crores by selling its theatrical rights in Tamil Nadu, which is the most important center for the release of Rajinikanth's film. Stating that he is aware of the political dilemma that Kumaraswamy is in, Rajinikanth said the non-release of the movie in Karnataka would only damage the state's image. "I had demanded Cauvery Management Board to be formed and all dams should come under its control and this is what the court also said". "When the film is released around the world, the Karnataka ban would highlight the issue (Cauvery water dispute) in Kannada, asking them to allow the release of the movie".

On 6 June morning, just before taking off to Siliguri for the shoot of his upcoming film with Karthik Subbaraj, Rajinikanth told the media in Chennai, "I understand the situation that Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy is facing". The high court is likely to take up the matter for discussion on Tuesday.
