Kamal Hassan had finally yielded to the pressure of Tamil distributors and exhibitors. He had dropped the idea of simultaneous TV release of his upcoming movie, Viswaroopam. Threatened with the ban of the theater release of the movie, the actor’s PRO reportedly had sent a pacification message to the distributors and exhibitors that the TV release idea will be dropped. However, few sources close to the actor say the idea is still in consideration for the Hindi version, Viswaroop.

The movie directed and enacted by Kamal Haasan himself features Pooja Kumar, Andrea, Rahul Bose, Shekar Kapur in key roles. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are the music composers. Recently the trailer of the movie was launched in 11.1 Aura sound technology, which is the first time ever in the Asian film industry.
