Agitators outside theatres were seen requesting the moviegoers not to watch the movie. As a surprise treat for fans, the makers have now released the official video song of "Kannamma" from the film. The Rajinikanth-starrer will hit the screens on Thursday, following judicial intervention from three different courts. In what is being perceived as a shocking setback to the Superstar's legend, his latest release Kaala is reported to have opened to a rather underwhelming response.

Movie theatres are adorned with grand posters and hoardings of Rajinikanth's film and it's no less than a festival for fans of Rajinikanth worldwide today. "But we hope they have some great story to be shared which may be liked and the film does well", said Mohan.

Ironically, the movie Kaala directed by Pa. Ranjith set in Mumbai's Dharavi, talks about the politics of land and celebrates protest.

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

Although Pogba and Mourinho are rumoured to have fallen out, it would be a surprise if United's No 6 were sold this summer. United have got their man and Fred can now join up with his Brazil team-mates and focus on their World Cup campaign.

"I have not been following 'Kaala' release or its prospects, but I would imagine, the socio-political stand Rajini sir has taken in the past one year people might have started looking at him differently from the demi-god that he used to be", he said. The film is facing a "ban" in the state over Rajinikanth's remarks on the controversial issue of sharing of Cauvery river water between the neighbouring states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Thalaivar's comments on the Cauvery water dispute upset several Pro-Kannada outfits, who threatened to stage protests in front of theatres screening the film.

Most theatres in Bengaluru also chose to heed to the call made by pro-Kannada organisations and Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, asking distributors and theatre owners not to release the movie.

Rajinikanth's Kaala has got a good opening at the Tamil Nadu box office.
