Rajinikanth's Kaala has been the centre of controversy since a few weeks now. The Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce and even the state government decided to ban the movie in the state following Rajinikanth's comment on the Cauvery issue. The makers successfully appealed in the High Court and the ban was lifted. The protestors went ahead and filed a plea at the Supreme Court to block the film's release in Karnataka. The Supreme Court also ruled in favour of the film and told the state government to provide extra police protection to the theatres screening Kaala in Karnataka. Rajinikanth and team Kaala even managed to get 130 screens for the movie in the state. However, Karanataka CM Kumaraswamy was unimpressed and requested theatre owners not to screen the movie. And looks like most of them have complied as no show has taken place till now in the state.
And the one show that did take place in Bengaluru was stopped midway because the protests got out of control. In fact, a few other cinemas were also planning to showcase the movie, but the protests have made them cancel all their shows. Talking about this development, trade expert - Sreedhar Pillai mentioned on twitter, "#Kaala Karnataka update - No show so far. One Theater in Bengaluru started but stopped almost immediately due to protest and refunded the audiences."
