Agitators were seen requesting the 67-year-old actor's fans not to watch the movie for the sake of their Kannada brethren fighting for Cauvery water.

A day after the Karnataka High Court ordered the State government to give police protection to theatres screening the film, the Madras High Court and the Supreme Court refused to stay the release of the film, which has been facing legal and political hurdles. In what is being perceived as a shocking setback to the Superstar's legend, his latest release Kaala is reported to have opened to a rather underwhelming response.

Rajinikanth starrer "Kaala" was not released in Bengaluru and other parts of the state amidst protest by Pro-Kannada organizations on Thursday. If the film collects Rs 280 crore more then it will secure a position on the list of 2018's commercial hit films.

The film will hit the theatres in Karnataka, where pro-Kannada groups have been agitating against it, in protest against the actor-turned-politician's remarks on the Cauvery river water dispute.

Movie theatres are adorned with grand posters and hoardings of Rajinikanth's film and it's no less than a festival for fans of Rajinikanth worldwide today.

The film, however, will have its full-fledged release in the state on Friday, The New Indian Express reported. Pa Ranjith has directed this film.

Yesterday, the Karnataka High Court had asked the state to provide security to the theatres screening the film. Protestors held demonstrations outside theatres in Bengaluru asking fans to not watch the show. He also appealed to the state film chambers in Kannada.

From Pa Ranjith's direction to the awesome chemistry between Rajinikanth and Eswari Rao, Kaala has been declared as a blockbuster by the fans.
