Kamal Hasan's Vishwaroopam faces a temporary ban in Tamil Nadu
The screening of Kamal Hasan's much-awaited film 'Vishwaroopam', due for release in Tamil Nadu on January 25, has been banned for fortnight in the wake of a petition filed with the state home secretary by various Muslim organisations. The objection is that the film portrays Muslims in bad light and has offensive references to the Holy Quran.

Various Muslim organisations are seeking a complete ban on the film. Meanwhile, the state chief minister J Jayalalitha reviewed the law and order situation in the state on Wednesday evening. She took decision to impose a temporary ban on the controversial film and directed the district collectors and police chiefs to issue orders for implementing the ban.

Vishwaroopam is a spy thriller film written, directed and co-produced by Kamal Hasan with him in the lead role and Pooja Kumar, Rahul Bose, Andrea Jeremiah and Jaideep Ahlawat in supporting roles. It is believed that Vishwaroopam is the first Indian film, and second film worldwide, to utilize the new Auro 3D viewing.

Not only Muslims but a Hindu group is also against the name of the film which they consider is not a Tamil word.
