It may be noted that when he was to Hyderabad to promote "Dangal" in December 2016, Aamir Khan had revealed that he has always been a fan of Chiranjeevi among the Telugu actors. The Kollywood movie has been released in over 500 screens across the state, while the worldwide screen count is said to be above 2,500.

Miffed with Rajinikanth's comments over Cauvery water, the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce on May 29 decided not to allow screening of "Kaala".

Mumbai: Excitement and enthusiasm is simmering among superstar Rajinikanth's fans whose is making a comeback to cinema with his latest movie "Kaala" that has hit the big screens today. Pa Ranjith has directed this film.

"This is HUGE! #Kaala is the FIRST ever Indian film to be released in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia!", Wunderbar Fims, the production company owned by actor Dhanush and his wife Aishwarya said on Twitter.

Hundreds of activists of pro-Kannada organisations, including the KRV, gathered outside theatres and multiplexes in Bengaluru, Mysuru, Hubballi, Mangaluru, Ballari and Belagavi to protest against the film's release."Cauvery water is more important than a Rajinikanth film for us". I am not saying this as a chief minister. However, most single screen theatres did not play the movie. "However, personally, speaking as a Kannadiga, I will say that considering the situation in the state, the makers should themselves not release the movie", he said on Tuesday. Kaala's release seemingly more impacted by politics than even Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat, that was released after the Supreme Court's directions.

Meanwhile, theatres in Karnataka are avoiding screening "Kaala", amid protests. Made on an estimated budget of Rs 140 crore, the broadcasting rights of the film have also been sold to Star TV and Amazon.
