Kamal Haasan's spy-thriller Vishwaroopam finally released in movie halls across Tamil Nadu today, with audio edited out in seven scenes.
Actor Kamal Haasan thanked fellow Tamil superstar Rajinikanth for standing by him during the row over Vishwaroopam by arranging a screening of the film at Rajinikanth's home in Chennai this evening. Kamal Haasan did not watch his film with Rajinikanth. Instead, he attended a separate screening for other celebrities.
Actor-director Kamal Haasan has agreed to 'mute' seven scenes in his movie Vishwaroopam that Muslim groups have found objectionable. This follows a five-hour meeting between Mr Haasan, government officials, and representatives of Muslim groups in Chennai.
Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam is more of a thriller than an action drama and has an interesting storyline. Watch the movie for its action sequences, cinematography and brilliant acting by the actors.
The Hindi version of Kamal Haasan's film Vishwaroop releases today and here is a look at how the film is fairing across the country.
As Jayalalithaa breaks her silence over Kamal Haasan's film, we ask: are states abdicating responsibility?
The actor says he is grateful to Chief Minister Jayalalithaa for "clearing him of all doubts". "I'm always willing to compromise," he says.
Kamal Haasan says he is hurt by all the controversy about his film and may consider leaving the country if it happens again.
An ambitious Kamal Hassan hoped Vishwaroopam would easily cross the Rs 150-crore mark within weeks of its release all over. But the controversy surrounding the film has led to huge losses for the actor-director.
The nationwide furore over her government's ban on Kamal Haasan's mega production Vishwaroopam forced the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister to defend the move with some detailed math today, saying she had no other option.
Kamal Haasan's spy-thriller Vishwaroopam may just have a happy ending after all. In Chennai, the chief minister J Jayalalithaa ardently defended a two-week ban on the movie imposed by the government but suggested the terms for a compromise.
An impassioned Kamal Haasan spoke out at the way he has been treated, saying it is clear Tamil Nadu doesn't want him. The Tamil superstar said he had mortgaged all properties for his Rs 100-crore movie, Vishwaroopam, and that he and his movie had been caught in a political game.
After losing a court battle to have the ban on his film Vishwaroopman rescinded, actor Kamal Haasan appeared on the terrace of his office and told hundreds of fans gathered there to stay calm. "I am struggling for justice," he said, "don't give in to anger."
Actor Kamal Haasan reacts to Tamil Nadu government's appeal against the High Court verdict that allows big-budget thriller Vishwaroopam to release in the state.
"It would be a great shame if Tamil Nadu forces Kamal Haasan out," the actor said.
Shah Rukh Khan says the whole fiasco around Vishwaroopam is completely unwarranted and he has faced similar issues in the past with his own films such as My Name Is Khan and Om Shanti Om.
The superstar came to Kamal Haasan's defence on Twitter and said he would surely watch Vishwaroopam.
Telugu superstar Nagarjuna talks to NDTV about the controversy surrounding Kamal Haasan's film Vishwaroopam and being an ardent fan of the actor, he says that Kamal Haasan could never affect communal harmony through his films.
Kamal Haasan's actor-daughter Shruti Haasan and noted filmmaker Deepa Mehta tell NDTV why the ban is unfair.
