Kamal Haasan says he may leave TN for ever

PTI | 30th Jan 2013

Chennai: Upset over the hurdles caused by the ban on the release of mega budget ‘Vishwaroopam’, an emotional Kamal Haasan today said Tamil Nadu does not want him to stay in the state and he might seek a “secular” place in the country or overseas.

“When M F Hussain can do it, Kamal Haasan will do it... I am fed up. I am an artiste. After that, I will have to seek a secular state for my stay... Secular state from Kashmir to Kerala, excluding Tamil Nadu... Tamil Nadu wants me out,” he said in a choked voice as the fate of the movie is still to be decided in the court.

The actor said he had pledged all his property to make the trilingual movie, estimated to have cost around Rs 100 crore. He said he might lose his house because of the losses incurred by the delay in the release of the movie.

Haasan said he was still to get interim relief as the film shows were “started and stopped” by police today, who sought a physical copy of the single judge’s order passed last night, giving clearance of the film.

“...But I believe that along with my Muslim friends, I have been instrument in a political game. I don’t know who is playing and not even hazarding the guess. The fact remains that my history has proven that I have been neither leaning to the left or right but trying to maintain my position,” Haasan said.

This is what a politicians are capable of doing to a country, community or an individual. She, Jayalalitha, being a great friend of Narendra Modi, wanted to change her image in front of minorities just for the coming elections. Being a good actor, now she is playing the role of minority saviour. And this great artist happened to be the scapegoat this time. Its really sad that neither political leaders nor film associations are coming to his help who brought so much proud to the state of tamil nadu.

This should work as a deterrent to people who are obsessed with portraying Muslims as the way they portray.

As an Indian living in America, it is repulsive to read that the WTC was an inner planning by the USA. It is as insulting as saying the Mumbai Massacre as inner planning of India. Living with one's head in the sand and believing in conspiracy theories is what leads to ignorant comments like that. Become educated about the world.

Kamalahaasan is a great actor and a bold and dynamic producer. If you read his family history, you will realize that even his father was a secular person and did not believe in any particular religion or the caste system. That's why he chose a Muslim sounding name for his son. Kamalahaasan is the greatest actor in S,India. People of all regions and religions should think, analyze and understand before making ludicrous and reprehensible remarks. Tamilnadu has shown that it is spineless.

Viswaroopaam is a gripping thriller. I know because I saw it (uncut) with my wife in the USA, and we are not even devotees of Kamal Hasan. It compares favorably with top grossing Hollywood action thrillers, and has in ample measure the ingredients an average moviegoer in the Western world craves. To boot, it boasts a formidable halo of being banned in a dozen countries around the world. Thus Viswaroopam is worth re-releasing through time honored Hollywood distribution channels in major world markets including the US, Europe, Russia, Australia, China, Japan, Korea, Mexico and so forth. It is just a matter of dubbing the movie into major world languages. The budget was reportedly around US$ 30 million. At that point, ideologically sympathetic Hollywood investors would find the project irresistible to capitalize on. Will Kamal (no longer homeless) Hasan launch Viswaroopam in Hollywood and redeem his fortune, seize universal fame, and at the same time unshackle his art?

I doubt if he will be forced to "Beek maang overseas ja key" status. Politicians (small scale) in Tamil nadu may have been able to ban Vishwaroopam in the state but other states and citizens of rest of the country will shower love for the movie and he will be able to recover atleast cost of the movie. Anyways People of TN bordering AP are coming across to watch Vishwa.... Irony.... Please don`t try to buy sympathy for terrorists of Taliban...by saying "Muslims are innocent" ! No doubt Muslims are innocent but not their job-less evil leaders who in the name of religion misguide them to practice killings of other innocents. Still if you find them innocent..Say it completely "Innocent-Murderers".
