Rajini’s Kuselan releasing in Kannada also
The Kannada version of Rajnikanth’s Kuselan ( Kathanayakudu in Telugu) got into a simultaneous release problem because ofsome pro-Kannadiga activist groups. They alleged that Rajinikanth made some anti-Karnataka comments during the water dispute between Tamilnadu and Karnataka on the Rs.13.3 billion Hogenekkal project.
However, the probucer K Balachander and director P Vasu were able to persuade the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) to release the Kannada version of the film simultaneously with Tamil and Telugu on August 1. In one of the songs in the film the late Kannada superstar Rajkumar is also seen.
