Kamal Haasan complies; agrees to edit 'Vishwaroopam'
After several talks with some Muslim groups, the actor-director will now edit the controversial scenes from the film, to release it in Tamil Nadu
After a series of bans and controversial accusations from Tamil Nadu’s muslim groups, South Indian Superstar Kamaal Haasan has agreed to make some changes to his high grosser film Vishwaroopam.
The film will be released as soon as the Tamil Nadu government withdraws its prohibitory order.
“I’ve arrived at a consensus with my Muslim brothers. We’ve agreed to cut some scenes from the film which they found to be objectionable,” Haasan, who produced the film and acted in it, told reporters yesterday.
“We’ve submitted letters to the government requesting it to oversee talks between Raj Kamal Films International and (Muslim) leaders,” Chandra Haasan, Haasan’s brother said on Thursday.
The preliminary talks between both parties were moderated by Tamil Nadu Home Secretary R. Rajagopal.
Both sides agreed to meet after Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa said her government would help the actor-director release the film if he reaches a pact with the protestors.
The film’s Hindi version released February 1 across the country.
