New Delhi: Amid speculations that the Madras High Court will pass its verdict on plea filed by veteran actor Kamal Haasan against the two-week ban on release of film in Tamil Nadu, the court has deferred its order till Tuesday.

The High Court observed that Kamal Haasan should engage with the group opposing the film and should find an amicable solution.

Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan, returned to Chennai early on Monday morning after premiering Vishwaroopam in the US and is likely to meet government official.

Earlier, Justice K Venkatraman along with some members of the judiciary watched the private screening of Kamal Haasan's banned film "Vishwaroopam" in Chennai on January 26 and had to announce the verdict on Monday.

The Tamil and Telugu versions of "Vishwaroopam", which deals with the adversities of war, were scheduled to release on January 25, but the Tamil Nadu government imposed a curb on it following protests from Muslim groups.

The ban came after members of Muslim organisations objected to the film on the ground that it portrays the community in bad light. A day later, the Madras High Court restricted the film's release till January 28.

Though the film was screened on the opening in Andhra Pradesh and Kerala, but soon after the first show many theatres were asked to stop the screening.
"Vishwaroop", the Hindi version, is slated to release Feb 1.
