Although Kaala is scheduled to release worldwide on 7 June, the KFCC had said the film would be neither distributed nor screened in the state. After the KFCC announced the decision to not let the film release, Kaala producer Dhanush and his wife Aishwarya filed a petition in the Karnataka HC. In the plea, Dhanush, who is Rajinikanth's son-in-law, submitted that it is the fundamental right of the petitioners under the Constitution to exhibit the film.
