  • ‘Only Thalaivar can do this’: Rajinikanth’s 'Kaala' becomes first Indian film to be released in Saudi Arabia in decades

The release of his latest release, Kaala, has been no less than a celebration for his fans in the state. It is heard that the theatrical and music rights of Kaala (in all languages) worldwide sold over Rs. 230 Cr.

On most online booking platforms, tickets for different shows of Kaala directed by Pa. Ranjith are still available from Friday through Sunday, a big departure from a typical opening of a Rajinikanth film. Movie theatres are decked up with cutouts and Posters of Rajinikanth and his film Kaala film. Vishal adds that "Kaala" may well surprise naysayers.

In Chennai, Rajini fans offered milk to the poster of the 67-year-old actor and burst crackers before gathering in large numbers to watch the film in theatres.

R S Srinivas, the movie's distributor in Karnataka (except Ballari), told TOI: "It is disappointing that there were no morning shows, but theatres began screening the film in the afternoon".

Nadal fightback held up by rain
Rafael Nadal's grip on the French Open title was in danger of being loosened by the unlikely figure of Diego Schwartzman . Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro were locked at 5-5 in a first-set tie-break when their quarter-final was suspended.

However, besides the piracy website, few cases reported where the audience were caught streaming the film live from thratres. The promos of 'Kaala' haven't established a connect with Hindi audiences. However, after 11 am it is likely that the film will begin.

"Kaala has to compete with a Steven Spielberg franchise Jurassic World which is a huge event". They are shutting by themselves and are not screening Kaala.

Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty who has worked repeatedly with Rajini on Ra.One, Robot etc, agrees that Rajini's politics could be a negative force in his career. Kaala has taken the movie lovers and Rajinikanth's fan by storm. The film is facing a "ban" in the state over Rajinikanth's remarks on the controversial issue of sharing of Cauvery river water between the neighbouring states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Several pro-Kannada groups have also warned theatres not to screen the film if they want to avoid any untoward incident. "We will not allow Tamil films to run".
