Only a few hours are left for Kaala release and despite the Karnataka High Court refused to stay the film’s release and asked to provide additional security, the violence has already erupted. A video has emerged which shows pro-Kannada outfits attacking a distributor’s office and tearing up film’s posters in Bengaluru.
Check the video being circulated on social media.
Hooliganism in the name of #Kannada pride. Posters of #Kaala torn down and violance threatened ahead of movie release in #Bengaluru. #Rajnikanth has every right to express himself over #Cauvery or anything else. Disagree if you want. pic.twitter.com/JYh1If0wbj

Rajinikanth’s Kaala Movie Distributor’s Office Attacked In Bengaluru
Earlier, we informed you that Superstar appealed to Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy to release film, in which he said, “I understand HD Kumaraswamy’s situation. This is not good for Karnataka. When the film is released around the world, the Karnataka ban would highlight the issue. The Film Chambers is supposed to ensure that there’s no problem for distributors. It is not right that the Karnataka Film Chamber demands Kaala ban.” Rajinikanth comments on Cauvery issue has kicked up a storm which had hurt the sentiments of pro-Kannada fringe groups. The Superstar urged for the Karnataka government to follows Supreme Court diktat and realise the water share to Tamil Nadu.
We have to see how the fringe outfits react on June 7.
