For the last 6 months, Kamal Haasan has been in negotiations with a number of all India distributors to sell Tamil, Telugu and Hindi version of Vishwaroopam for a total of Rs. 100 Crores. Unfortunately, none of the discussions became successful causing further delays. So, the actor came up with a radical plan to achieve his 100 Crore vision by releasing Vishwaroopam in all 3 languages simultaneously in major TV networks all over India.
Kamal had negotiated for a first day release (one-time) for almost Rs. 50 Crores with DTH operators (Tata SKY, Dish TV, Reliance and Airtel – Except Sun Dish TV). This news had spread in the industry like a wildfire. And the people associated with Tamil movie trade expressed deep concerns that if Kamal’s e idea becomes a success, many future movies will follow this new revenue model which will result in slowly wiping out the theatrical collections. So, they have threatened to stall the movie release in Tamilnadu if the actor does not repeal his plans
