Bengaluru: Super star Rajinikanth fans in Karnataka, who were eagerly waiting to watch Kaala on its worldwide release on Thursday, need not feel disappointed.

However, in a sudden development, leading Kannada film producer and distributor Kanakapura Srinivas has decided to release the movie.
“Yes, Kaala is releasing across the State and in Bengaluru on Thursday. I have been arranging the theatre set up and was busy with the contract process for the release. As of now, the movie will release in about 60 to 70 screens on Thursday. The number will go up to more than 250 screens from Friday,” Srinivas added.
With regard to advance ticket booking facility through various online portals, the distributor said that online facility will made available late Wednesday night and the first show of Kaala will be as early as 10.30 a.m on Thursday.
