It’s final — Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam will be released in Tamil Nadu this Thursday.
The actor, who withdrew his petition against ban by the state government in the Madras High Court, announced the release date a few minutes ago.
Haasan thanked Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa for facilitating his dialogue with the Tamil groups, which paved way for the release, as well as the support by the film industry in Tamil Nadu and rest of India, his fans and supporters, and the media.
All the changes suggested by the Muslim organisations are being carried out. Since considerable part of the post-production of the movie was done in the US, the changes are also being done there.
Although non-availability of theatres was initially a hitch for the actor, the failure of two big films at the box office — Kadal and David — will be a blessing in disguise for him. Not only are the theatres and film buffs looking forward to a blockbuster experience, failing footfalls for other films will prompt theatres to accommodate Vishwaroopam.
