Kamal Haasan loses battle to distributor

Kamal Haasan's plan of introducing a new form of distribution seems to have fallen flat on its face. Kamal Hasan has revealed that his forthcoming film Vishwaroop will hit theatre screens on 25th January this year. Contrary to rumors circulating around the release date of the film Hasan says, "Based on unstinted support of theatre owners and distributors fraternity, Vishwaroop will release on Jan 25." "My film ('Vishwaroop') will be released in not less than 500 screens in Tamil Nadu," he added. Kamal Haasan planned to release the film simultaneously in DTH platform in an unprecedented move. But the distributors and theatre owners were not happy with this decision and put up a protest. The much talked about film was scheduled to premiere on the DTH (Direct - To - Home) platform on 10th January, but was called off due to the mounting pressure. However Kamal also added that the film would be released via DTH, but the date has not yet been finalised. "I appreciate the exhibitors and distributors for having understood my vision of creating new revenue stream for film producing community through DTH," said Kamal Haasan. Vishvaroop stars Kamal Hasan, Andrea Jeremiah and Pooja in lead roles. The other actors in the movie are Rahul Bose, Shekhar Kapur and Jaideep Ahlawat. The Tamil and Telugu version of the film named Vishwaroopam is written, directed and produced by Kamal himself.
