Time not right to release Rajinikanth's Kaala, says Kumaraswamy

The court is of the opinion that it can not force anybody to release a film and can not interfere with the ban.

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.

Rajnikanth appealed to his Kannada brothers to help release the movie and to let people watch it.

On June 5, the Karnataka High Court ordered the state government to provide protection to the list of theatres which have come forward to screen Kaala.

Rajnikanth said he has faith that Karnataka Chief Minister Kumaraswamy will provide security to theatres screening the film. This is not good for Karnataka.

Owing to Rajinikanth's stand on the formation of Cauvery Management Board, the pro-Kannada groups have threatened to stall the release of Kaala in Karnataka.

As head of K'taka govt, I have to implement the direction of High Court, it's my responsibility. On Tuesday, Chief Minister Kumaraswamy requested the film's producers not to release the movie in this situation. Kumaraswamy said he was talking from experience.

Prakash Raj, who has extended his support to Rajinikanth's Kaala over the release-issues that the movie is facing in Karnataka, has reminded Kamal Haasan about him seeking support from the public when his Vishwaroopam was banned by Tamil Nadu government in 2013. "After there is a solution to this (Cauvery) water issue, then they can release anytime", he said.

The State's Additional Advocate General, A.G. Shivanna, made it clear to the court that the government had not taken any decision on banning the film and assured the court that the government would provide security to places where the film would be exhibited.
