Kerala film industry has lent their support to Universal Hero Kamal Hassan’s “Viswaroopam”, by continuing to screen the film in major centres. A few theatres in Ernakulam, Palakkad and Idukki had to stop the shows following demonstrations by Muslim organisations. But the police have reportedly offered to render protection to sensitive zones. The Marxist Communists in Palakkad voiced that they will stop all the films if ‘Viswaroopam’ is banned. The distributor in Kerala and the Kerala government too have lent their support for a smooth run of the film.
