Hyderabad: Several film star across India have voiced their support to Kamal Hassan and condemned the Tamil Nadu Government's action of banning the controversial movie Vishwaroopam. Ace Telugu director SS Rajamouli is one such celebrities, who is very upset with government's decision. He says that there is nothing that hurts the sentiments of Muslim. He says that instead of supporting artistes, the government has banned the movie screening, which is shocking.
After watching Vishwaroopam on January 25, SS Rajamouli took to his Twitter page and wrote, "Usually all commercial films have black and white characters and complex characters are for parallel films. Vishwaroopam is the first Pakka Commercial film that I know which has complex characters which was refreshin 2watch. Kamal's performance as the dance master is extraordinary. Makeup and spl efx are top notch. i would have preffered a little less gore, but that is personal taste (sic)."
Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli also expressed his disappointment over TN Government's action. He tweeted, "And tamilnadu govt banning the film is quite shocking. Govt advocate stating that there will be wide spread violence is the home of the year. There's nothing in the film that Hurts the sentiments of the Muslims. Hope the good sense prevails. And wish the producers somehow recover the money that has been lost."
On January 26, SS Rajamouli once again took to his Twitter page and hurled his anger against government. He tweeted, "Initially i was outraged along with the film fraternity at the atrocity of banning #vishwaroobam stating "it hurts the sentiments of the Muslims." Which part hurts the Muslims? Showing talibans in bad light?? Now is the govt implying that the Indian Muslims support talibans? Isn't that insulting the Muslims of this country?? (sic)"
"And what happened to the freedom expression. Constitution going down the drain? What happened to the supreme court ruling that no govt can stop any film's release stating it will cause law and order problem? In fact the ruling says it is the DUTY of the govt to protect the intrests of the producer in case of law and order situation arises. Are govts above these laws?"
"The greatness of 5000 year old bharatha varsha lies in respecting and honouring artists across caste creed and religion. MF Hussain, Tasleema Nasreen and now Kamal haasan. What are we doing?? This certainly is NOT our culture. Initially i thought this is just vote bank politics. Now it seems to be more a personal vendetta. Now, What do I feel? Sadness....and more than that fear."
