Kamal has produced, acted and directed the films titled Viswaroobam. Kamal Haasan has decided to release this film one day earlier through DTH service before its theatrical release. Cinema theatre owners protested against this.
They had announced that if Kamal releases Viswaroobam through DTH services, they will not screen his film in the theatres. Kamal was also firm in this matter and similarly the theatre owners were also firm in their stand.
At a time when it was announced that Viswaroobam will be telecast on 10th, Kamal Haasan who met the journalists yesterday said that he has postponed the release of his film in the theatres and through DTH services. After this members of the Theatre Owners Association and Distributors Association held talks with Kamal last night.
During the talks, the problem was amicably solved. After this, Kamal had announced that his film Viswaroobam will be released throughout the world on 25th in the theatres but he did not mention that when this will be telecast through DTH services. The film is to be released in more than 500 theatres.
Kamal in a statement has mentioned, “With the whole hearted support of the theatre owners and film distributors, the film is being released on 25th January in more than 500 theatres. I am also gratitude to the theatre owners and distributor brothers who have supported my new effort of telecasting my film through DTH services. I am thankful to one and all who had cooperated and respected this single man.”
