Kamal Bows Down to Pressure?

When Kamal Haasan met the media persons to brief about the Vishwaroopam issue, one major question that he had to face was if he postponed the DTH and theatrical release due to pressure. Reacting to this, the Ulaga Nayagan said that he did not feel threatened or was pressurized to cancel the DTH screening.

Kamal pointed out that reports about Vishwaroopam hitting the screens on January 25th is not true and he will announce the date very soon. Until then, he asked the media to refrain from speculating about the release date. He added that the release date has been put off as he wants a good date for Vishwaroopam’s Telugu and Hindi versions as well.

Yet another major announcement that came from Kamal was that both the DTH and theatrical release will happen on the same day. He pointed out that this again was not due to some external pressure but had taken into consideration some of his close friends’ advice.

When asked about what he intends to do about the illegal screening of Vishwaroopam in public places such as hotels and marriage halls, Kamal said that he will proceed with legal action if it is brought to his notice.

Finally, he added that he would take legal action on those who are trying to threaten him with dire consequences regarding this film release. However, he did not reveal the names of those threatening him but merely said that they had been his ‘friends’ in the industry.
