Raijni’s fans rejoice as the Tamil starrer film ‘Kaala’ is set to release on June 7 worldwide. The film is produced by his Son-in-law Dhanush’s Wunderbar Studios.
The film is not even released yet and it already is in news as the Kannada pro-activists demanded the ban of the Rajinikanth’s starrer cinema. Earlier hundreds of pro-activists stepped onto the roads and demanded from the of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) that the film should not be released in Karnataka as the actor had earlier supported the creation of the Cauvery Management Board. And the KFCC had decided to ban the screening of the film in the state but according to a PTI report the Film Federation of India has requested the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC) to intervene in the decision made by the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) to ban upcoming film Kaala, starring Rajinikanth, in the state of Karnataka.
About the Cauvery waters case the actor had said after the results of the Karnataka assembly elections that whichever government comes into power Karnataka should release Cauvery waters so that the both states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu could benefit from it. But the Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had stepped in and responded to Rajinikanth by asking the actor to visit the state and see the condition of farmers and the water level in the dams before commenting on the matter.
But the KFCC president Sa Ra Govindu has admitted that the actor’s statement on Cauvery was responsible for their ban of the film. According to PTI, Sa Ra Govindu stated that “the ban will remain because neither will he apologise for his statement nor are we going to pardon him,”. The South super star has a lot of fan following in the state and as a large amount of population in the state of Karnataka are Tamilians so a ban on the film could lead to poor business and profits.
“I have spoken to KFCC president Sa Ra Govindu and also written a letter to him. The KFCC would probably call for a meeting with the outfits tomorrow or the day after. It is unfortunate that cinema is being mixed with politics, which would only result in a loss to the film industry. The ban on Kaala will not only affect the Tamil film industry, but also the Kannada film fraternity and the Indian film industry as a whole,” SIFCC secretary L Suresh said.
Stepping in to this matter actor Prakash Raj on his twitter account said that “What’s film #kaala got to do with Kaveri issue..?why is film fraternity targeted always..? Will Jds/congress government let fringe elements take law into their hands …like bjp did with #Padmavat ..or ..will you step in to assure common man ..his right for choice.#justasking..”
