The Madras High Court on Thursday dismissed a petition filed against superstar Rajinikanth-starrer ‘Kaala’ seeking to stall the release over plagiarism charges. According to the petition filed by KS Rajasekaran, the petitioner alleged that the makers of ‘Kaala’ had plagiarised his story as well as the title ‘Karikalan’. Despite the claims made by Rajasekaran, the court refused to pass an order and dismissed the case due to inconclusive proof.
Kaala is an upcoming 2018 Indian Tamil language gangster film written and directed by Pa. Ranjith and produced by Dhanush. Starring Rajinikanth in the lead role. The film also stars Nana Patekar, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Huma Qureshi and Samuthirakani in pivotal roles.
Rajinikanth’s Kaala, which was confirmed to hit the screens on April 27, is likely to be postponed again, The reason for postponement is the ongoing strike between Tamil Film Producers Council and Digital Service Providers who have been at loggerheads for over a month now.
The makers are contemplating of releasing Kaala in June as it appears to be a more convenient date. The official announcement regarding the film’s release postponement is yet to be made and it’s likely to come this week.
Reports also suggest that Lyca, the distributors of Kaala, has already given their full support to the ongoing strike. In fact, they had even shared a tweet saying,”We are in sync with the Producers Council and in complete support of the demands. We will comply with the same till the system is rectified.”
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth’s much-anticipated follow-up to Robot 2.0, is predicted to release around Independence Day.
