Salman Khan took to Twitter to express his support for Kamal Haasan's film 'Vishwaroopam', which is facing a ban in Tamil Nadu.

He said, "Hope each n every fan of his supports him like I am doing n want all my fan to fully support him."

He also posted a picture that had 'I support Kamal Haasan' written on it. He urged people to go and stand outside cinema halls and insist on watching the film. Khan also tweeted, "Go thr insist that u wanna c it , thr is a supreme court judgment after the film is censored no body can stop it."

The Dabangg actor  lamented that the film industry received support only from fans and that it was burdened with taxes. He tweeted, "Ek toh the industry does not get any support frm any 1 but the fans bus tax pe tax. Now they stopping the releases of our movies."

Haasan's 'Vishwaroopam' was to release on January 25. However, after some Muslim bodies objected to the representation of their community in the film, it was banned in Tamil Nadu.

On Wednesday, Madras High Court stayed the release of the film despite Haasan agreeing to modify certain scenes.

Haasan is so miffed with this controversy that he has reportedly threatened to move to a "secular state" within or even outside India.
