Rajinikanth’s remarks on Tuticorin protests cast shadow on his new film Kaala

Film star Rajinikanth is receiving flak for his comments on the ongoing Sterlite protests as his film Kaala is set to release on 7th June. Rajinikanth had blamed the anti-socials for the violence during the anti-Sterlite rally on 22nd May which resulted in the death of 13 people in police firing. He had even asked for an ‘iron fist’ policy to crush the anti-socials.

However, his statements don’t seem to have gone down too well. DMK leader M K Stalin and AIADMK rebel leader TTV Dhinakaran have intensified their attack on the actor. As per reports, the film has already hit controversies in Karnataka where film distributors and theatre owners have not shown much excitement over screening the film. The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) has even disallowed the release of the film. Reports also say the film is facing troubles in north and south Tamil Nadu as well. Some theatre owners in Tamil Nadu have also asked for additional deployment of police to control the crowd during the release of Kaala.

Actor Kamal Haasan, whose statement on Tuticorin protests reminded people eerily of Kashmir uprising, slammed Rajinikanth and is reported to have said that if the protestors are anti-social, so am I. Meanwhile, opposition leaders have already branded Rajinikanth as BJP’s team B.
