Following protests by a host of Bollywood filmmakers, an Indian court is expected to lift a ban on Kamal Hassan's Vishwaroopam, The state government of Tamil Nadu had imposed the ban after threats of violence by some Muslim groups who found the film offensive. The Times of India today (Thursday) quoted Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa as saying that Hassan could thrash out the differences with the protesting Muslim groups and the government would clear the decks for the film's release. We don't want to harm Kamal or infringe on his freedom of expression. Hassan has already initiated such talks, the Times indicated, and an edited version of the film could be in theaters even before the next scheduled hearing of the case next Wednesday. At a news conference today Hassan maintained that there were no scenes in the film that will hurt the emotions of the Muslim community.
