The KFCC and pro-Kannada elements are upset by the superstar's remarks on the Cauvery water row. The Karnataka high court has ordered the state to provide security to the theatres screening the movie.

A vacation bench comprising Justices A K Goel and Ashok Bhushan refused to entertain plea of the petitioner who claims to be the original scripwriter of the film and told him that he may be compensated in future if the court gives verdict in his favour, but release of the film can not be stayed.

In his message, Rajinikanth said, "I understand HD Kumaraswamy's situation".

Trump Slammed Canada for Burning Down the White House. It Didn't, Really
The 1812 reference may prove the bizarreness of the entire argument, but it also points to a more troubling, historical lesson. The problem with Trump's comments to Trudeau is that British troops burned down the White House during the War of 1812 .

Everybody is anxiously waiting for the release of the movie.

Chennai: While Rajinikanth's fans in Tamil Nadu are ecstatic as their superstar's film Kaala is scheduled to hit screens world over on Thursday, his detractors in Karnataka, apparently fringe groups, are in a frenzy, demanding to stall the movie in the state. This is not good for Karnataka. He also sent out a video in Kannada to KFCC telling them, "The Film Chambers is supposed to ensure that there's no problem for distributors". The uncertainty is lingering over "Kaala" release and no one knows how anyone can go and watch the movie in Karnataka when the activists might be agitating outside the theatres.

Meanwhile, Kaala Karnataka distribution has changed hands from Goldie Films to leading producer and distributor Kanakapura Srinivas. The new distributor is the veteran #KanakapuraSrinivas producer and distributor.

The noise was so loud many of Woods fellow competitors, including World No 1 Justin Thomas , simply stopped play. Woods played the last five holes of the front nine in five under, starting with his second eagle of the week.

The petitioners had moved the court following statements, issued by some personalities related to Kannada film industry and certain organisations, against allowing release of the film in the State, urging Karnataka Chief Minister to prevent release of the film in the State as Mr. Rajinikanth had issued a statement in connection with Cauvery river water dispute.

Kaala will open with 4 am show on June 7th in spite of subtle pre-release hype for the film produced by Dhanush and directed by Pa Ranjith of "Kabali" fame.

Kaala will premier tonight (6 June) in key overseas markets like United States of America and Dubai and it will open in India with usual early morning shows slotted at 4 am in Chennai suburban theatres.
