  • ‘Only Thalaivar can do this’: Rajinikanth’s 'Kaala' becomes first Indian film to be released in Saudi Arabia in decades

Enthusiasm was seen among Rajinikanth's fans in Mumbai who queued up in large numbers outside a movie theatre to watch "Kaala". Like most of the times during the release of Rajinikanth's film, people from Japan and other parts of the country joined the fans in India to celebrate yet another film, where Thalaiva takes the centrestage. Reports suggest that "Kaala" is Rajinikanth's biggest release in the USA so far and has superseded "Kabali".

Superstar Aamir Khan says he is a huge fan of Tamil megastar Rajinikanth and can not wait to watch his latest release "Kaala".

"This is HUGE! #Kaala is the FIRST ever Indian film to be released in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia!", Wunderbar Fims, the production company owned by actor Dhanush and his wife Aishwarya said on Twitter.

In Delhi, earlier, the Supreme Court refused to stall the release of the film.

With the good reviews coming the film's way, the collection of Kaala is expected to improve in the next few days.

The tepid response has led to growing doubts about Rajinikanth's prospects in Tamil Nadu politics, given that Kaala is his first film after he jumped into the political arena. 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.

Pro-Kannada workers protest outside Balaji theatre in Bengaluru where Rajinikanth's movie Kaala is screening, on June 7, 2018.

Most theatres in Bengaluru also chose to heed to the call made by pro-Kannada organisations and Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, asking distributors and theatre owners not to release the movie.

Aamir and Rajinikanth have featured together in the 1995 film "Aatank Hi Aatank".
