In what could be a shocking news for audience, Kamal
Hassan's much-awaited Vishwaroopam has been banned in
Tamil Nadu for 15 days. The state government has decided to ban the
film after several Muslim organisations raised objection claiming
that the multilingual film shows their community in bad light.
The film was supposed to release tomorrow (January 25) in over
500 screens. The authorities have ordered district collectors to
stop the screening of Vishwaroopam and also they have
orally communicated to stop the advance booking of the one of the
biggest budget films of Tamil film industry.
A couple of days ago, Vishwaroopam was screened to
several Muslim outfits and they were not happy with the content, as
they felt that the film would disturb the communal harmony. This
development comes as a big blow for Kamal Hassan after the DTH
(Direct to Home) première mess up.
However, fans of Kamal Hassan hope that Chief Minister
Jayalalithaa, who is a close friend of the actor, would intervene
to resolve the issue. Meanwhile, the film is expected to release in
other parts of the country without any trouble.
Vishwaroopam is one of the biggest films of Kamal
Hassan, in terms of budget, and apart from directing, he has also
acted and produced the film. It is made with the budget of Rs 95
crore and the film also features Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah,
Rahul Bose, among others.
