Aamir Khan can't wait to see Kaala

Amidst Controversy in Karnataka SC Refuses to Stay Release of 'Kaala'

Agitators were seen requesting the 67-year-old actor's fans not to watch the movie for the sake of their Kannada brethren fighting for Cauvery water. As a surprise treat for fans, the makers have now released the official video song of "Kannamma" from the film.

A day before the release of Kaala, two theatres in Chennai- Kamala Cinemas and Udhayam, announced that they would screen Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom instead of the Rajinikanth starrer. Reports suggest that "Kaala" is Rajinikanth's biggest release in the USA so far and has superseded "Kabali". Armed with the recent High Court order directing the government "to take adequate steps to ensure a peaceful atmosphere for the screening of the film", Karnataka's film distributors have chose to go ahead with the release. "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". Reported to be made on a budget of Rs 140 crore, "Kaala" is produced by Dhanush's Wunderbar Films.

The tepid response has led to growing doubts about Rajinikanth's prospects in Tamil Nadu politics, given that Kaala is his first film after he jumped into the political arena.

"We are telling them that the issue of sharing Cauvery water is more important than the film", he said. "But I would like to act with Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan", the perfectionist had said.

Meanwhile, theatres in Karnataka are avoiding screening "Kaala", amid protests. "There is no question of seeking an apology but the actor should state that he will help resolve the Cauvery issue", Sa Ra Govindu, president of the Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce (KFCC) and pro-Kannada activist said.

Aamir and Rajinikanth have featured together in the 1995 film "Aatank Hi Aatank".
