Kamal Haasan faced roadblocks for trying to release Vishwaroopam on DTH. His film was not even taken for theatrical release because he attempted to release his film simultaneously on DTH. However, the actor-filmmaker is serious about releasing Vishwaroopam 2 via DTH, if not in India, then at least abroad.
Kamal said that DTH is only a medium to make audiences go watch a film in theatres as well after watching it on television. He added that all of have kitchens at home, and yet, we go and dine outside. Have we ever stopped ourselves from going to restaurants because we have kitchens? It is a powerful medium and we should use it effectively.
He reiterated that if his film is not allowed to be released via DTH in India, then he would release it in other countries on this platform. The film is nearing completion is slated to release soon.
