In what could be perceived as a shocking setback to the Rajinikanth legend, his latest release Kaala has opened to an underwhelming response.

"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.

The film, however, will have its full-fledged release in the state on Friday, The New Indian Express reported.

Amid high drama and police cover, Rajinikanth's Kaala was screened in many parts of the state, including Bengaluru. The planned morning shows did not run and screening only started in the afternoon.

Also, in the wake of the protest, the screening of the movie has been stalled in Orion mall in Malleswaram, Garuda and Lido malls in Bengaluru central district.

Like Halep, Stephens is an incredibly talented defensive player, and she kept stretching points Thursday until Keys would err. As great a mover and defender as Halep is, she could be left powerless if Muguruza is at her imposing best.


Meanwhile, theatres in Karnataka are avoiding screening "Kaala", amid protests. "He (Rajinikanth) has hurt us by supporting the cause of Tamil Nadu in the sharing of the river water", KRV President Praveen Shetty told reporters here.

Earlier, Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy had suggested voluntarily backing off from the release in view of the sentiments of the protesters.

Other fans had made the journey to Chennai or to Hosur across the border in Tamil Nadu just to be able to see the film. Helmed by Pa Ranjith, Helmed by Pa Ranjith, Kaala marks the second collaboration of the actor-director duo after their 2016 super hit release Kabali.

Superstar Rajinikanth has a huge fan following in Kerala. Several pro-Kannada groups have also warned theatres not to screen the film if they want to avoid any untoward incident. "Also, a section of Rajinikanth's audience is not happy with his entry into politics", said Mohan.
