'Vishwaroopam' controversy: Kamal Haasan thanks CM, rules out SC move for now

Kamal Haasan

Haasan thanked his fans and "film fraternity", saying, "They came forward to support the film. I must thank all of them. Javed saab (Javed Akhtar) came forward, although he was not a part of the film. Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan), Aamir and Salman they supported me."

Salman requested his fans to stand outside the cinemas and demand to see 'Vishwaroopam' while Askhay Kumar termed the ban as "sad".

"It is just a movie and there are only two kinds of movies - good or bad, hit and flop - and only people who decide are the ones who buy tickets. Hope each and every fan of his supports him like I am doing and want all my fans to fully support him," Salman posted on Twitter.

Akshay Kumar hoped that the actor will find a solution soon while Anupam Kher called the ban "ridiculous".

Other members of the film fraternity like Rajinikanth, Sivakumar, Prabhu, Arvind Swamy, actress Kushboo, Shah Rukh Khan, Mahesh Bhatt and Karan Johar have already spoken in support of Haasan.

Anupam Kher, Akshay Kumar support Kamal Haasan on movie ban

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar and veteran actor Anupam Kher today supported Kamal Haasan over 'Vishwaroopam' controversy with Kher terming the movie ban "ridiculous".

Tamil Nadu banned Haasan's film for two-weeks in the state, citing law and order problems following allegations by Muslim outfits that it portrayed the community in negative light.

Haasan is awaiting the Madras High court verdict on the Tamil version of the movie before deciding the next course of action. Hindi version hits theatres tomorrow.

Recalling the problems during the releae of his production 'Oh My God', Akshay said, "I had to talk to various organizations and make them understand that the movie is not against God. I think its absolutely useless that we have to do something like this."
