Rajinikanth’s Kaala: Despite 20 crore loss, movie earns 230 crore before release

Petitioner Rajashekaran had moved the top court challenging a Madras HC decision to hear his plea against the release of the film on June 16.

As per andhraboxoffice.com, 'Kaala' has earned Rs 60 crores by selling its theatrical rights in Tamil Nadu, which is the most important center for the release of Rajinikanth's film. Now, according to reports, some people stormed the office of a distributor who chose to release the film in Karnataka.

To this, senior counsel Dhyan Chinnappa, appearing for the petitioners, said that they would provide the list of theatres and multiplexes where the film is going to be exhibited in the State. The Karnataka high court has ordered the state to provide security to the theatres screening the movie.

The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday directed the State government, the State Police chief, and the Bengaluru City Police Commissioner to take necessary measures to prevent any inconvenience during the screening of Rajinikanth's movie Kaala and to movie-goers across the State. Several pro-Kannada groups threatened to stall the movie if it is screened despite an earlier ban on it by the Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce. Photos from the incident are doing the rounds of social media.

In his message, Rajinikanth said, "I understand HD Kumaraswamy's situation". We don't want to interfere with its release, the apex court said while refusing to stay the release of the movie. "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". "I had demanded Cauvery Management Board to be formed and all dams should come under its control and this is what the court also said".

Kaala marks Rajinikanth's return to the big screen after two years. Adding Rs 70 crores from satellite rights and Rs 5 crores from music rights, Rajinikanth's latest film has managed to earn over Rs 230 crore even before its release.
