* Sri Lankan government bans screening Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam
Thu, Jan 24, 2013, 09:22 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 24, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government has decided not to screen Kamal Haasan's latest movie Vishwaroopam.

The government is of the view that the Indian spy thriller may cause communal violence in the island where Tamils and Muslims are minorities.

Madras high court has ruled that Vishwaroopam cannot be screened in theatres across Tamil Nadu till January 28 until the judge would first watch the movie on January 26 before taking a decision.

The screening of the movie has been put on hold in India due to legal action taken by Islamic organizations protesting the movie.

Haasan features himself in the lead role of the movie directed and co-produced by him. The film also casts Pooja Kumar, Rahul Bose, Andrea Jeremiah and Jaideep Ahlawat in supporting roles.
