Vishwaroopam release: Police stop screening after petrol bombs are hurled at theatres

Theatre owners who dared to screen Kamal Haasan’s controversial movie had to face the police’s wrath and bear the brunt of a few sections of the society

Kamal Haasan has no respite. Despite the Madras High Court lifting the ban on Vishwaroopam‘s release yesterday, the movie was not allowed to be screened in cinemas today. Theatre owners were cautious about showing the movie, and cinemas which put up a brave front and heeded the court’s order to screen it, had to face the anger of some people who are still against the film. One such incident was reported in the Ramanathapuram district, 600 kms from Tamil Nadu capital of Chennai, where petrol bombs were hurled at some theatres, shattering the glass facade.

Another incident was reported in Erode where police intervened and asked theatre owners to stop the show just after the movie had started to play. At other places, complaints started pouring in that posters were being burnt and cops were asking owners to produce a copy of the High Court order.

Looks like Kamal’s problems are here to stay, at least for the time being, with no amicable solution in sight. No wonder then, that the filmmaker-actor threatened to leave the country and he feels he is not needed in Tamil Nadu anymore. READ MORE ABOUT IT HERE
