  • Mumbai Journalist Threatens To Sue Rajinikanth For'Kaala, Wants Apology

Dhanush the producer of the film petitioned the Karnataka HIgh Court which passed on order to the government to provide protection to the theaters screening the film. "However, personally, speaking as a Kannadiga, I will say that considering the situation in the state, the makers should themselves not release the movie", he said.

"I also told dams must be administered by the board", he said, adding the efforts to stall the release of the movie "do not seem right".

The miscreants tore the posters of Kaala and hit them with slippers to show their anger at the film being released in the state. There were rumours doing the rounds that Rockline Venkatesh had come forward to release the flick following Rajinikanth's request.

The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday directed the Karnataka Government to initiate steps and measures for peaceful screening of movie "Kaala", starring Rajinikanth, from June 7.

Crude oil prices claw back losses, but record U.S. output weighs
West Texas Intermediate and international-benchmark Brent crude oil futures are trading lower early Monday. Hedge funds invested in USA oil are betting pipeline bottlenecks will make Texas crude even cheaper.

Leading producer and distributor Kanakapura Srinivas is set to release Kaala in Karnataka despite facing threats from pro-Kannada groups, which have called for a ban on the film over Rajinikanth's pro-Tamil Nadu stand in the Cauvery issue.

The actor said, "Some people are opposing the release of my movie".

Observing that everyone was waiting for its release, a vacation bench of Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice Ashok Bhushan told petitioner K Rajashekaran that he would be entitled to compensation if his plagiarism claim of his original story Karikalan was sustained. "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". But Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said that the timing was not good for the release of the film.

Now for the movie to be declared a hit, it needs another Rs. 280 crore, which looks quite possible for the movie, considering how the megastar's last film "Kabali" collected Rs. 650 crore worldwide, with Rs. 259 overseas business.
