Karnataka must provide security for Kaala: High Court

"It pains me to see that even the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) seems to be in favour of the ban".

Certain organisations and persons related to the Kannada film industry have been opposing the release of the film, protesting against statements made by Mr. Rajinikanth on the Cauvery water sharing issue. The Additional Advocate General, Shivanna, told the court that the government has not received a list of theatres, dates and other details of release for it to take action.

The Karnataka Chief Minister has already announced that he will not go against the wishes of the people to releasee "Kaala" and it is still unknown whether his government will provide the protection.

The actor added an appeal to the state film chambers in Kannada, asking them to allow the release of the movie.

As head of K'taka govt, I have to implement the direction of High Court, it's my responsibility.

Meanwhile, the makers of Kaala, which is directed by Pa Ranjith, have approached the Karnataka High Court seeking the release of the flick in the state. His response comes after the Ulayanayagan refused to take up the issue with Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy during his meeting on Monday, June 4. "However, my personal opinion, as a Kannadiga, in such situation where there is opposition, it is ideal if they will not release the movie". "But it is not right to prevent the release", he said. Dhanush's council has stated that only after this the distributor and the theaters will be decided and that the producers will also seek the government support. "But according to my observations as an individual, in this kind of atmosphere it isn't good on the part of producer/ distributor to release the movie", Kumaraswamy was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
