New Delhi : In the midst of much fanfare, Rajinikanth starring Kaala has released in 2000 screens across the globe. The film got involved in the whole Cauvery controversy and nearly faced a ban in Karnataka.

Even after providing theatres, the film didn't made public in majority of the theatres in Karnataka.

Shocking everyone, Kaala has registered the lowest-ever box office opening for a Rajinikanth-starrer.

Actor Vishal, president of Tamil Nadu Film Producers' Council (TFPC), told IANS that it is not wise to come to a conclusion this soon.

He said, "Kaala has been unnecessarily embroiled in the Cauvery controversy. How much this has affected the film's opening, I don't know. What I do know is that at the end of the day, Rajini sir is Rajini sir."

He also added, "Any film of his evokes a massive response. The opening of Kaala may be on the lower side - I haven't found the time to check - because his last film with the same director (Pa Ranjith) had not been appreciated that much."

Vishal further shared that the film's collection might pick up momentum in the days to come.

"Rajini Sir's fan club is stronger than ever. They will ensure a smooth run for Kaala. Let's not forget, this is the Ramzan week and a sizable chunk of the audience likes to refrain from watching films during this period even if it is Rajini Sir's film. I intend to see Kaala as soon as possible."

Directed by Pa Ranjith, Kaala is a film revolves around the importance of owning land and land rights. The film, produced by Dhanush's Wunderbar Films, did a pre-release business of Rs 200 crore.
