Vishwaroopam

Over 30 activists of the Hindu Munnani were arrested when they tried to stage a demonstration demanding the release of Kamal Haasan’s film Vishwaroopam.

The activists,led by their leader Sanil Kumar, condemned the two-week ban on the film in Puducherry toeing the line of the Tamil Nadu government. The activists claimed that police did not give permission to them to stage a demo and were arrested after they assembled near Anna Salai.

Meanwhile, BJP workers, led by former state secretary Vishweshwaran and senior leader Saminathan, submitted a memorandum to the collector S B Deepak Kumar pointing out that banning the film after succumbing to pressure from certain groups was not a healthy practice. The saffron party said such acts might lead to division in society. They urged him to lift the ban on the film, which was in the limelight for peaceful co-existence of various communities.

Nalpani Iyakkam,Kamal fan’s association, petitioned Deepak Kumar urging him to release the film. They tried to stage a demonstration, but were refrained from doing so after a few officials of the collector’s office held talks with them. The actor’s fans then submitted a petition and dispersed peacefully.
