Now, SP talks about banning Vishwaroopam

Lucknow: After the ban in Tamil Nadu, Kamal Haasan's 'Vishwaroopam' may be prevented from screening in Uttar Pradesh if it is found that the film "hurts the sentiments" of Muslims and indulges in "character assassination", the ruling  Samajwadi Party (SP) said on Thursday.

"Officials concerned would see the film thoroughly; if it is found to be good and entertaining (then it is) fine, or else, it would not be allowed to run in UP," Samajwadi Party general secretary Ram Asrey Kushwaha told reporters in Lucknow.

"If it indulges in character assassination, it would not be screened in the state...," Kushwaha said. The veteran actor's spy thriller  has run into trouble in Tamil Nadu where the High Court yesterday stayed its screening over the sensitive content of the film.
    
"It appears that there are some portions which hurt the sentiments of a religious group or caste. Officials would look into it," the SP leader added.
