Less than 24 hours after Kamal Hassan’s radical idea of Viswaroopam TV release, revealed, the actor had to subdue the pressure of Tamilnadu distributors and exhibitors and drop his idea. Kamal had negotiated for a first day release (one-time) for almost Rs. 50 Crores with DTH operators but the people associated with Tamil movie trade expressed deep concerns that if Kamal’s idea becomes a success, many future movies will follow this new revenue model which will result in slowly wiping out the theatrical collections. So, they have threatened to stall the movie release in Tamilnadu if the actor does not repeal his plans.
So, sources close to Kamal Hassan had revealed that the actor had dropped this idea for Tamil version and is still considering it for the Hindi version of the movie, Viswaroop.
