But that does not mean that in the coming days fans won't flock to the theatres to watch the magic of the actor.
Rough estimates say that for Rajinikanth's last film, Kabali, the film was released in more than 300 screens and each screen averaged a take of more than Rs 2 lakh a day. His fans are excited about the film. Several pro-Kannada groups have also warned theatres not to screen the film if they want to avoid any untoward incident. Even before the release of "Kaala", reports of a third film by the duo have already started doing the rounds.
"We are unable to screen "Kaala" film for the time being despite the security provided due to strong protests against its release by the Kannada Rakshana Vedike (KRV) activists outside", a multiplex official told IANS here. 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.
Regretting that thousands of fans in the state, especially in cosmopolitan Bengaluru were being denied their legitimate right to watch a Rajinikanth movie, Sambargi said a bad precedence was being set despite the court's directive to allow its screening under police protection, as the exhibitors fear reprisal from the fringe elements and irrational protestors. Reportedly, Ranjith initially wanted to make a sequel to "Kabali", but changed his mind after speaking to the Tamil superstar, and ended up making "Kaala" instead.

The film has been at the centre of controversies over Rajinikanth's Cauvery remarks. Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had requested the distributor of "Kaala" not to release it in "this kind of atmosphere", but assured that his government would follow the high court order on the issue. Rajinikanth said that it was not right to oppose the film for his political views on the Cauvery river water dispute.
