Protesters suggest Haasan to cut 9 mins from ‘Vishwaroopam’
TNI Bureau: While Tamil Superstar Kamal Haasan is trying his best to convince the Muslim groups, who opposed to the release of his latest film ‘Vishwaroopam’, to end the ban on his film in Tamil Nadu, the Muslim protesters suggested to cut up to 9 minutes from the film, which allegedly has shown the Muslim community in a poor light.
The actor is talking with the Muslim community to make a compromise. Kamal Haasan is in Mumbai for the release of the Hindi version. The viewers of the film said that there is no anti-Muslim element in the film, nor the Muslim community has been portrayed in a poor light. Haasan’s brother, who is the co-producer of the film, said that he received suggestion from the Muslim protesters to cut few minutes from the film. The talk is still on.
Yesterday, the Tamil Nadu government talked tough against all the allegations made by DMK chief Karunanidhi and media. Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who justified the ban, argued that the decision was taken to maintain law and order in the state. She said that the government has given enough time to both sides to come to an agreement. She defended that she was not against the film nor she had any personal grudges against Kamal Haasan.
Haasan had earlier met some Muslim leaders and agreed to cut a list of scenes and words that hurt the Muslim sentiments.
