Kamal Hassan's latest film Vishwaroopam faced a lot of troubles during the release. The film, for the first time in the history of Tamil cinema, was released worldwide, except in Tamil Nadu, after the state government banned the film from its release.

Following the state government's ban, neighbouring states, including Karnataka government decided to stop the screening of the movie fearing law and order issues.

However, after police department promised to give adequate security in theatres where the movie gets released, the film was released in Karnataka.

The state government's decision was welcomed by a few Tamil organisations and Kamal Hassan fans considering that Karnataka has a lot of issues with Tamil Nadu over the Cauvery dispute.

It has to be noted that Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister R Ashoka said that the government would make arrangements to Kamal Hassan, who announced that he would leave India to some secular country when his movie was banned in Tamil Nadu, if he wishes to reside in Karnataka.

Now, it was time for Kamal Hassan to show his gratitude to the government and Kannadigas. A few days ago, he was in Bangalore to thank everyone, who gave him love and supported his film. Follow the slideshow to read what he said...

He claimed, "I thank the media for taking up my issue like it was their own fight. Because of that, I feel emboldened and stronger. Karnataka has always been an example for the Tamil Nadu government and the country. I'm grateful the state fearlessly released my film on time."

Recalling his early days in Bangalore, he said, "Thanks to those times, K Balachander brought me here and made a series of films with me. Even my first breakthrough in Malayalam was from this city through which I could find a good friend Ambareesh."

"Everybody knows about my long association with Ramesh Aravind. In fact, he knew about everything from the day it was a small 'roopam' till it went on to become Vishwaroopam," Kamal Hassan told about his friendship with Ramesh Aravind.
