Actor Kamal Hassan today said that Vishwaroopam, which was supposed to release on January 11, has been postponed to a future date for his convenience and he was not pressurised by anyone to postpone the release.
Addressing reporters in Chennai, he said, "I will announce the release date of Viswaroopam soon. No one else can take a decision on this regard. We want all the versions of the film (Tamil, Telugu and Hindi) to release on the same day. Also we would like to give more time for people to subscribe for DTH premiere.
He claimed, "So I will soon decide on a release date which is comfortable in all aspects," Kamal said. Stating that some of his friends in the industry requested him to air the movie on DTH platform on the same day of its theatrical release, Kamal said, "I will decide on this."
Kamal further said, "I am doing a honest and legitimate trade. No one has the right to stop me from going ahead. I will take legal action on those who threaten me and who try to prevent me from doing this."
In a dramatic turn of events, Kamal Hassan's prestigious Vishwaroopam, which also features Pooja Kumar, Rahul Bose and Andrea Jeremiah, was postponed and the buzz says that the film would hit screens on January 25.
