The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce disallowed the filmâ€™s release after Rajinikanthâ€™s remarks on the Cauvery water issue
Actor Rajinikanth has appealed to people of Karanataka to allow the release of his latest film â€˜Kaalaâ€™ after the state government banned its release.
According to a Times Now report, the actor has approached the state government on the matter and asked for the film to be released with the required security measures in place.
The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce disallowed the filmâ€™s release after Rajinikanthâ€™s remarks on Cauvery water issues. The actor asked the new government in Karnataka to give Tamil Nadu its share of Cauvery river water as mandated by the Supreme Court verdict.
"If there is water in Karnataka it is possible for us to give them water. I request Rajinikanth, please come and see the situation in our dams, what has happened to our farmers. After seeing that, if you (Rajinikanth) still want water, let's discuss," Kumaraswamy said.
The Karnataka High Court directed the state government on Tuesday to provide the necessary security for peaceful release 'Kaala', which pro-Kannada outfits had threatened to stall over the actor's reported remarks on the Cauvery row.
Kumaraswamy further requested the distributor of Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala not to release it in "this kind of atmosphere", but said the government would follow the High Court order on the issue.
