Don’t release Kaala film in Karnataka advises Kumaraswamy
Karnataka govt has appealed to producers of Rajinikanth-starer ‘Kaala’ to avoid screening it in Karnataka state in view of the burning tussle over Cauvery water sharing between both states.
Stoking a controversy over the film release chief minister HD Kumaraswamy said makers of the movie should avoid releasing it in the state “considering the situation” after the Karnataka high court directed the state to provide security to the centers screening the movie.
Citing an instance two years ago, when Kannada movie ‘Nagarahavu’ was allegedly pulled from movie halls in Tamil Nadu despite it being dubbed in Tamil, Kumaraswamy said Kannada movies were being discriminated against.
He said if some organizations protest and because of this people don’t turn up, they should not release the movie. The high court directed the producers of the film, Wunderbar Films, to furnish a list of theatres where the movie would be screened in the state so that adequate police protection could be ensured.
