Copyright claimant snubbed; Rajinikanth’s Kaala to release on schedule

Kaala is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language action film film written and directed by Ranjith and produced by Dhanush

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today refused to stall the release of Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala which is scheduled to hit theatres tomorrow. A vacation bench comprising Justices AK Goel and Ashok Bhushan refused to entertain a plea by KS Rajashekaran, who sought an injunction against the release of the movie.

“You want an injunction against the release of the movie. Everybody is waiting for the film to be released,” the bench told the counsel appearing for the petitioner.

The petitioner has approached the apex court against the 16 May order of the Madras High Court which has posted his plea against the release of the movie for hearing on 16 June.

The petitioner has claimed that his copyright-protected work related to story scenes and songs were used by the producer of the movie without prior permission.

“CBFC has issued a certification under Section 5B of the Cinematograph Act, 1952, for the release of Kaala after following due process and adhering to all guidelines. After receiving such a certificate, it is the fundamental right of the petitioner under Article 19(1) of the Constitution to exhibit the film,” the petitioners had submitted.

Rajinikanth also appealed to the Kannadigas to let the film get a smooth theatrical release. He said, “To our Kannada brothers, I appeal to you, I have done no wrong. So for those who want to watch the film, please do not disrupt it. I humbly appeal to you to not trouble the filmgoers.”

Kaala is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language action film written and directed by Pa Ranjith and produced by Dhanush under his banner Wunderbar Films. Starring Rajinikanth in the lead role, the film was announced in 2016. The film was earlier scheduled to be released on 27 April 2018 but was postponed to June due to the standoff between Nadigar Sangam and Digital Service Providers on the increase of VPF charges along with the 2018 Tamil Nadu protests for Kaveri water sharing issue which also led to the delay in the release of other Tamil films.
