The state government's sudden decision to ban Kamal Hassan's much-hyped Vishwaroopam has come under severe scrutiny from various quarters. Especially in media and on social networking sites, people are pitching in their support to the Ulaganayagan and blasting the government for stopping the release for 15 days in Tamil Nadu.

Bowing down to the demands of several Muslim groups, the state government took a tough call on the grounds that the content of multilingual movie Vishwaroopam could disturb the communal harmony. The protesters, who saw the film recently at a special screening, were not happy with some parts that lead them to demand for a ban.

However, the ban is garnering a strong objection on social networking sites with celebrities openly criticising the government's decision and urging the government to lift the ban on Vishwaroopam. Here, we are bringing you some of the tweets posted by well-known personalities.

Of all tweets, the surprising support came from spiritual guru, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He wrote, "India is a free country. Kamal Hassan has been gifted with unique talents. He has the right to express his views & creativity unobstructed." Follow the slideshow to read all those supporting posts of celebrities...
