‘Kaala’ screened in Bengaluru amid tight security

Bengaluru: The multilingual “Kaala” film of Tamil star Rajinikanth was released from Thursday evening in twelve theaters and six multiplexes here in the midst of tight security after protesters were whisked away and confined, police said. 

“A few theaters and multiplexes began screening the film after around 300 protesters were taken away and kept in police headquarters over the city,” a cop told the media here. 

Many fans thronged multiplexes, for example, Inox, PVR, Lido and Garuda in the city to watch the film on the first day after the exhibitors abstained from screening it early in the day and evening because of protests by activists of star Kannada associations. 

Prior in the day, more than 100 theaters and multiplexes crosswise over Karnataka conceded screening the film in the midst of vociferous dissents against the film over Rajinikanth’s Tamil Nadu stance on the Cauvery river water sharing issue. 

“It’s the same old thing since night as the protesters fended off and nearness of police work force made many fans to come and watch the film under tight security,” a multiplex manager told the media. 

As coordinated by the Karnataka High Court on Tuesday, the state government conveyed sufficient police faculty at the theaters and multiplexes for the insurance of fans and wellbeing of open property after the activists asked distributors and exhibitors to abstain from screening the film. 

Many activists likewise challenged at Mysuru, Hubballi, Mangaluru, Ballari and Belagavi. 

“Cauvery water is more vital than a Rajinikanth film for us. Our respect and Kannada pride are in question. He (Rajinikanth) has harmed us by supporting the reason for Tamil Nadu in the sharing of the river water,” KRV President Praveen Shetty told journalists here. 

Numerous fans who purchased the tickets online for the show on Wednesday were baffled as they couldn’t watch their most loved hero’s film. 

Other than the first Tamil form, the film has been released the nation over and past with sub-titles in Hindi, Telugu and English.
