Kamal Haasan threatens India with self-exile over Vishwaroopam row

Kamal Haasan

"M F Husain did it, now Haasan will do it. I will seek a living in India or abroad," he added.

"When I have nothing to lose, I might as well choose. I will look for a place to stay from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, but not Tamil Nadu... Tamil Nadu wants me out. if I can't find it here, I will look for it abroad. Nothing will change the fact that I am a Tamil and an Indian, only my passport will change."

Unwilling to say anything to get into further trouble as the case is sub judice, Kamal says, "Let me not blame anyone, I am too small a man. We all know who is responsible for this reprehensible state of affairs."

On the violence that has happened and is held up as a threat for the future, he said, "I know my fans will keep the peace - a lot of my fans are Muslims. They have not found anything wrong with the film and have been supportive throughout. I have promised my Muslim brothers that I will not do anything wrong."

"I fail to realise how a film based in Afghanistan can be derogatory or otherwise insulting for Muslims in India. India has been known as a secular state, but what is happening is not right for its people, for its future".

While concluding the meet, he said, "I may not retain this house, but I am sure I will still have homes to feed me. Now, I shall wait for the new judgment."
