Rajinikanth On His Films Getting Banned In Karnataka
The past few days have seen celebrities from the Tamil film industry voice out their opinions regarding the setting up of a Cauvery Management Board as well as bringing a resolve to the Sterlite factory crisis. 'Superstar' Rajinikanth, who not long back announced his political entry, spoke about the Cauvery issue yesterday (08.04.2018) by requesting the players of the Chennai Super Kings cricket team to wear black bands during their matches in the ongoing eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The idea behind such a move says Rajinikanth is basically to show unanimity for the people of Tamil Nadu, who are protesting for the setting up of the Cauvery Management Board.
Later in the day, Rajinikanth was poised with the question on fringe groups in Karnataka looking to ban his and Kamal Haasan’s films in the coming days after their statements on the setting up of the Cauvery Management Board.
The popular actor stated if such an occurrence were to happen, the film’s producers as well as the Karnataka government will look into the matters.
The 'Superstar' has already completed his portions in production of two of his upcoming films starting with Kaala, which was announced for a release later this month.
The highly anticipated sci-fi action thriller, 2.0, under Shankar's direction made at an estimated Rs. 400 crores budget too is prepped for a release later this year with post-production works being carried out at present.
In addition, Rajinikanth has also signed up for a film, Thalaivar 165, to be produced under the Sun Pictures banner to be directed by young acclaimed filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj, which will see production kick-off in the days ahead.
