"Kaala" is scheduled for a worldwide release on June 7, but the KFCC had said the film would neither be distributed nor screened in the state.

The appeal comes close on the heels of Tuesday's Karnataka High Court order that left room for theatres to screen the movie if they wanted.

"If they forcefully release the movie they will have to face the consequences".

He also assured the court that the state government would provide security to theatres screening the film in the state. This is not good for Karnataka.

The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce submitted to the court that they have nothing to do with any ban on the film.

Look for Yvette Herrell and Monty Newman to rise to to the top in the GOP primary, but which one wins that race is anyone's guess. In fact he's running twice-both to serve as his own temporary replacement until November and to serve out the next full term.

Despite the uncertainty in Karnataka, Rajinikanth's much-awaited gangster drama Kaala Karikaalan has already earned a massive Rs. 230 crore from theatrical and music rights, reports Hindustan Times. We don't want to interfere with its release, the apex court said while refusing to stay the release of the movie.

Kumaraswamy, who hails from the movie industry himself, said that there were many instances of Kannada movies being discriminated in the neighbouring state.

"I am also a film distributor and producer".

State's Additional Advocate General A.G. Shivanna told the court during the hearing that the state government did not ban the screening of the film but the distributors and exhibitors had voluntarily decided not to screen it to avoid any law and order problem.

Prakash Raj, who has extended his support to Rajinikanth's Kaala over the release-issues that the movie is facing in Karnataka, has reminded Kamal Haasan about him seeking support from the public when his Vishwaroopam was banned by Tamil Nadu government in 2013. "After there is a solution to this (Cauvery) water issue, then they can release anytime", he said.
