On Wednesday, the Supreme Court refused to stall the release of Kaala in Karnataka saying: "You (the petitioner) want an injunction against the release of the movie. Everybody is waiting for the film to be released," reports news agency PTI. However, there's no update on the ban imposed by the Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce following Rajinikanth's comment on the Cauvery row, in which he sided with the Supreme Court's order.
As per the Hindustan Times report, if Kaala's release had not hit the speed-breaker named Karnataka, the pre-release collection would've been nearly Rs 300 crore.
In Kaala, Rajinikanth plays the 'King of Dharavi,' which is said to be one of Mumbai's biggest slums). The film also stars Huma Qureshi and Nana Patekar.
