Rajinikanth's Kaala won't release in Karnataka over Cauvery issues, Vishwaroopam 2 to face similar ban
The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce has banned Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala. The film will not be releasing in theaters across Karnataka.
According to reports, Vatal Nagaraj’s Kannada Okkoota along with nine more pro-Kannada organisations approached Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce to ban Kaala and Kamal Haasan’s upcoming films because both the stars have urged in various interactions to establish Cauvery Management Board.
Though Rajinikanth’s films have previously earned profits to the distributors and theater owners in Karnataka, they have apparently taken the decision to support their state. As Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce will not cooperate Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan's films, together the producers of Kaala, Vishwaroopam 2, 2.0, Indian 2 and superstar's untitled film with Karthik Subbaraj will lose around Rs 30cr-40cr business.
Rajinikanth’s Kaala is slated to release on 7 June and soon, Kamal Haasan’s long pending Vishwaroopam 2 will also hit the screens.
