During the Cauvery issue, Rajinikanth supported Tamil Nadu and this stance of the superstar has earned the wrath of political parties in Karnataka. Recently Kannada outfits have protested in front of theaters in Bangalore, where they have screened Rajinikanth’s Kabali.
Irked by the protestors, Rajinikanth fans have argued with them, which in turn lead to huge agitation and cops were deployed to control the situation. Apparently, cops have lathi charged Rajinikanth fans and they are pissed off by the behavior of Karnataka government, who are only supporting the locals and not following the proper rules and regulations.
Kabali has been released in more than 300 theaters in Karnataka.
