Prior to the judgement, there were lots of reports, which claimed that the court had given a positive judgement and Viswaroopam would release as per the earlier plans. This piece of news floating on internet gave a sign of relief to all Kamal Hassan's plans. But now the verdict has disappointed the audience, who were on their toes to watch the film this weekend. More on the judgement is awaited.
In what could be a shocking news for audience, Kamal Hassan's much-awaited Viswaroopam was banned in Tamil Nadu for 15 days on January 23 . The state government decided to ban the film after several Muslim organisations raised objection claiming that the multilingual film shows their community in bad light.
However, Viswaroopam, which is made with the budget of Rs 95 crores, will release in about 500 screens in Tamil Nadu. The Telugu version of the movie is also simultaneously hitting screens on Friday.
