Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam finally released in over 500 screens yesterday across Tamil Nadu and has emerged a winner! Kamal says, "There was not a murmur of unrest let alone protest, anywhere in Tamil Nadu. Fans from both the communities, Hindu and Muslim, had assured me there would be absolute peace. Sure enough, the film opened today without any incident. I feel vindicated." As the film had released everywhere else, before it released in Tamil Nadu, there were pirated copies of Vishwaroopam available in Chennai, but no one has bought it and have patiently waited to watch it on the big screen! Talking about it, the actor said,"My audiences know how important the success of 'Vishwaroopam' is for my future. They have decided to boycott the pirates because they know my survival depends entirely on the success of this film. So no pirated copies of the film are being bought." Vishwaroopam has been written, directed and co-produced by Kamal Haasan, in which he himself plays the lead along with Pooja Kumar, Andrea, Shekhar Kapur and Rahul Bose. Music has been composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
