Actor Kamal Haasan has agreed to remove certain scenes from his film 'Vishwaroopam' and said that he has settled the issue amicably with Muslim bodies who were stalling the film's release.

Veteran actor Kamal Haasan has agreed to modify his film 'Vishwaroopam' following objections from certain Muslim organisations.

"My Muslim brothers have written and to me and we have settled amicably. I have agreed to modify some scenes. 'Vishwaroopam' is not an anti-Indian Muslim film, it is pro-Indian Muslim film," he said.

"There is no difference between me and my Muslim brothers. It is our duty to take care of them. There are four scenes that are being pointed out and I am willing to remove these scenes from the movie," he added.

The film written, produced and directed by him, was banned by the state government after some Muslim groups complained that the film portrayed their community in a bad light. Apart from Tamil Nadu, the film was banned in Andhra Pradesh and Kerala.

The Madras High Court Tuesday ruled in favour of 'Vishwaroopam' and lifted the ban by the state government. It, however, said the administrative step was to be taken by the government.
