Queuing up outside theatres from as early as 5.30 a.m. to offering garland to Kamal Haasan`s cut-outs, fans went berserk when ‘Vishwaroopam’ hit about 600 theatres Thursday after approximately two weeks` delay.
In the wake of row over Kamal Hasan`s movie ‘Vishwaroopam’, the Centre today set up a judicial committee to have a relook at the Cinematograph Act to make it more robust and ensure that movies do not get stuck after clearances by the film certification board.
The Hindi version of actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan`s ‘Vishwaroopam’ hit the screens Feb 1 amid controversies and the espionage thriller, made at Rs.95 crore, grossed approximately Rs.7.66 crore in its opening weekend.
Stating that talks are still on to end the deadlock, Kamal Haasan on Thursday decided that he would not move the Supreme Court to challenge Madras High courts decision to stay ban on his film ‘Vishwaroopam’.
In a dramatic turnaround of events, as Kamal Haasan waits for the Madras High Court to declare its final verdict on his film ‘Vishwaroopam’, petrol bombs were hurled at two theaters in Ramanathapuram district, Tamil Nadu, that were scheduled to screen the film.
