Ban has inflicted Rs 60-cr loss: Haasan

The Hindi version of the film ‘Vishwaroop’ hit the screen across northern India.

On Thursday, Jayalalithaa justified the ban and said she has no "personal grudge" against Hassan or "personal interest" in the ban, a day after the actor threatened to take self-imposed exile in a secular place in the country, excluding Tamil Nadu, or overseas.

Later, Haasan thanked Jayalalithaa for her intervention and insisted there were no “bad Muslims” in his film.

The movie ran into a controversy when some Muslim groups alleged that the film hurts the religious sentiments of the Muslim community.

The Madras High Court on January 29 stayed single bench’s order lifting the ban from the movie.

The Tamil and Telugu versions of "Vishwaroopam", which deals with the adversities of war, were scheduled to release on January 25. The film has already released in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala.
