‘Its our duty to ensure that every artiste should be given right freedom and encouraged. No artiste would dream of division in society’, Kamal Haasan said.
Speaking to media persons to thank them for their phenomenal support for the release of Vishwaroopam, Kamal Haasan insisted that his freedom of expression was ‘intact’ with only a few scenes muted in Vishwaropam.
‘See to it that artistes like me don’t get into trouble again,’ said a hugely-relieved actor as the film opened to packed houses.
Today’s release capped a two-week long drama with many a twist and turn that saw opposition by theatre owners over the actor’s plan to release it on DTH platform, protests by Muslim outfits that led to a two-week ban by Tamil Nadu government, court battle and threat of self-exile by the actor.
