The broadcast rights of the film has been sold at Rs 70 crore and the music rights have been sold for Rs 5 crore. Kaala has also earned Rs 33 crore in the AP/Nizam region and has managed to earn 10 crore in Kerala. Rajnikanth's recent movies such as Kabali, Enthiran, Sivaji have all touched Rs 100 crore. Enthiran also raked in around Rs 290 crore. In the film, he says that whichever party forms the government in the state - Karnataka witnessed elections in May - should implement the Supreme Court's order on water sharing with Tamil Nadu.

Kaala, directed by Pa Ranjith, will release in Karnataka on Thursday after facing hurdles in the state over its lead actor Rajinikanth's allegedly offensive comments against Kannadigas during protests over the distribution of Cauvery river waters. However, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said he will abide by the court ruling though he feels "the atmosphere is not conducive for the release of the film and it can cause unnecessary trouble". Speaking in Kannada, the Superstar said it is not right for the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce to demand a ban on the film. "We don't want to interfere with its release", Supreme Court said while refusing to stay the release of the film. Rajinikanth recently said he is lucky to get equal love from the Telugu viewers.
