Pro-Kannada organisations had protested against the release of the film after Rajinikanth's comments on the sharing of Cauvery waters - always a troublesome issue between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

"Kaala has been unnecessarily embroiled in the Cauvery controversy. We are really big fans of Rajinikanth but especially when it comes to the language and Cauvery river.We are fighting for our rights".

CLEVELAND , Ohio - On a night when most of the Golden State Warriors didn't have it, Kevin Durant went on an offensive explosion. It became tricky this season when each of them was injured for a span, most recently Curry at the start of the playoffs.


Meanwhile, the initial reports for the Rajinikanth starrer Kaala have been largely positive, with praises pouring in for Rajinikanth and Pa Ranjith. "What I do know is that at the end of the day Rajini sir is Rajini sir".

Starring Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar, Anjali Patil and Samuthirakani in prominent roles, the film revolves around Kaala (Rajinikanth) as the savior of the people living in Dharavi and the fight against the power-hungry to ensure justice for the oppressed. Rajinikanth is still a huge craze as the character Chitti of "Robot" and fans are waiting for the sequel "2.0". Don't be surprised if you find Aamir Khan sitting next to you in one of the theatres. The promos of Kaala haven't established a connect with Hindi audiences. "But we hope they have some great story to be shared which may be liked and the film does well", said Mohan. Kaala's release seemingly more impacted by politics than even Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat, that was released after the Supreme Court's directions. Notably, 'Kaala' has to compete with "Jurassic World" of the Steven Spielberg franchise at the same time.

Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty who has worked repeatedly with Rajini on Ra.One, Robot etc, agrees that Rajini's politics could be a negative force in his career.
