Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam banned in Tamil Nadu!

The actor-director’s controversial film that was to release this Friday has been banned for 15 days in his home state

With Muslim organisations objecting to actor-filmmaker Kamal Hassan’s movie Vishwaroopam on the ground that it portrays the community in bad light, the Tamil Nadu government on Wednesday banned it for 15 days.

The movie’s Tamil and Telugu versions were slated for release on Friday, January 25, 2013 and the government order was issued late Wednesday after the representatives of some Muslim organisations met the state home secretary and submitted a memorandum.

When Muslim organisations had objected to the movie, Kamal Hassan organised a special show for them to allay their fears. However, the organisations hardened their stance after watching the movie, alleging that the community was shown in bad light.

According to HM Jawahirullah, a member of Tamil Nadu assembly and president of Muslim Munetra Kazhagam, the movie painted all Muslims as terrorists.
