Is this how much Rajinikanth-starrer ‘Kaala’ has earned?

Rajinikanth's'Kaala to open big in Tamil Nadu on Thursday despite hiccups

Rajinikanth's'Kaala to open big in Tamil Nadu on Thursday despite hiccups

Rajinikanth's film 'Kaala' is all set to be released tomorrow, but Karnataka's film chamber is against it, because they don't like what Rajinikanth said on the Cauvery water dispute. Tweets also suggest that the film was uploaded at 5.28 am in the morning with many fans asking producers to take strict action against Tamilrockers. In Mumbai, Rajinikanth fans braved heavy rain to come in large numbers to watch "Kaala" first day first show. Rajinikanth is still a huge craze as the character Chitti of "Robot" and fans are waiting for the sequel "2.0". Media analysts say that the response to the film could be a result of people taking a stand against the Superstar's views on issues such as the Cauvery dispute with Karnataka.

"Kaala", which is facing massive protest in Karnataka by pro-Kannada activists, created history by becoming the first Indian film to be screened in deeply conservative country after the return of cinema. Hum Qureshi, Nana Patekar, Anjali Patil, Pankaj Tripathi and Eswari Rao essayed crucial roles in the movie. Tamil Nadu rights alone have been acquired for Rs 60 crore, followed by AP/Nizam region with Rs 45 crore and Rs 10 crore from Kerala. If the film collects Rs. 280 Cr more then it will secure a position on the list of 2018's commercial hit movies.

On the otherside, Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy requested the makers of Rajinikanth's Kaala not to release it in the state in "this kind of atmosphere". "I request your cooperation the outfits to not disturb the screening".

Imran Khan's ex-wife threatens to file defamation suit against Reham Khan
In an interview to CNN-News18, Reham Khan alleged that sexual favours were used to get political positions within PTI ranks. This constituted a violation of Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution, she was quoted as saying by the Pakistani media.

In Delhi, earlier, the Supreme Court refused to stall the release of the film.

Movie theatres were closed in the early 1980s after pressure from powerful clerics who claim that movies are inconsistent with a strict interpretation of Islam.
