Karnataka must provide security for Kaala: High Court

Instead of breaking the ceiling with expectations, the team has been far more controlled in charting the path to the film's release. The court was told that there was threat to the film's release.

"We don't want to interfere with its release", the apex court said while it rejected a plea to stay the ban. The advocate pointed out that several organisations and individuals had issued a threat.

Megastar Rajinikanth's Kaala is yet to be released. "That is related to the Film Chamber". However, Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday requested the distributor of the film to defer the release of the movie.

Earlier, the distributors association said they were against the ban and did not have any role to play to stop Kaala's screening.

"An elected GOVERNMENT cannot shun its DUTY by saying we have not BANNED the film IT should ENSURE CITZENS RIGHT of CHOICE.and not SUCCUMB to fringe groups taking LAW into their hands and BAN a film". Why unnecessarily by releasing the movie this kind of controversy.

"As head of the Karnataka government, it's my responsibility to implement the judgements and directions of the High Court".

Stating that it was the government's duty to follow the court orders to provide security to centres screening the film, Kumaraswamy said, "in my personal opinion as a Kannadiga, in such situation where there is opposition, it is ideal if they will not release the movie".

The hardened stance of the chief minister comes a day after he met with veteran Tamil actor, Kamal Haasan, who offered to help bridge any differences between the two southern states, including in the Cauvery river water issue.

Rajinikanth is hopeful that Kaala would not face any issues in Karnataka. To the plea to provide police protection the judge ordered the petitioner to provide the theater list in advance to the government to facilitate protection for the viewers and property.
