Embattled Kamal Haasan starrer Viswaroopam encountered fresh trouble on Tuesday with a section of Muslim leaders meeting City Police Commissioner S George and demanding a complete ban on its screening.

In all, 20 leaders met the CoP and alleged that the movie had scenes that portrayed the ‘Holy Quran’ and the religion in a bad light.

They claimed that Viswaroopam had a plot in which an RAW official sets out to hunt terrorists (read Muslims) but later takes the side of the terrorists to train them in warfare.

The leaders demanded that the police prevent its release on January 26 to ensure that social harmony was not disrupted.

They also said that they had plans of meeting the State Home Secretary in this regard. Earlier, Muslim outfits demanded a special screening of the film prior to its release.
