Vishwaroopam has been hitting headlines over the DTH release issue in the recent times. While Kamal Hassan is clear on his stand and unwilling to bow down to the demands of theatre association, the latter is planning to boycott the film and does not like to encourage this trend as it could prove them costly in the future.
Often meetings are being held between various parties and many have tried to resolve the issue. But both Kamal Hassan and theatre association have not soften their stand and the release of the film continues to be a worrisome factor for general audience.
In fact, the Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association on Tuesday (December 18) has decided not to co-operate with Kamal Hassan by disassociating from the film Vishwaroopam. They are also being supported by Tamil Film Producer's Council.
On the other end, many in the industry have supported the risky idea of Kamal Hassan. They feel that releasing directly on DTH would be an innovative idea, which would expand the Tamil film market. However, the price for premiering has not been fixed. It is speculated that it would cost Rs 1,000 per premiere.
In spite of these confusions, here is something for all Kamal Hassan fans. We are bringing you some of the unseen pictures from Vishwaroopam. Follow the slideshow...
However, the issue over the release is in the court of Tamil Nadu Distributors Federation, which is having a meeting on December 20.
Vishwaroopam is a spy-thriller starring Kamal Hassan, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Rahul Bose and others in the cast.
The highlight of the film is the sound format called Auro 3D, which is being adopted for Vishwaroopam. The latest technology has been implemented in George Lucas' Hollywood movie Red Tail.

It is the only movie in the world that is converted to Auro 3D, and Vishwaroopam, which is directed by Kamal himself, becomes the second film.
