4. I Was Labelled an Anti-Muslim After ‘Vishwaroopam’: Kamal Haasan
The first-look of Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2 which the filmmaker-actor put out on Tuesday shows him holding the Indian flag. His face has a plaster covering his cheek. That, considering the physical and emotional battering he has been through in recent months, is an image truly in character.
During the time of the release of Vishwaroopam, Muslim organizations had objected to certain portions of the film, informed Kamal.
I was labelled an anti-Muslim. I wonder where these groups were when I was being attacked for Hey Ram 17 years ago. At that time my film was a threat to the saffron colour. In Vishwaroopam it was the colour green. Only the colour changes. The pattern of illogical protests remain the same. I am against any kind of terrorism, whatever its colour: green, saffron or khaki. I love all Indians regardless of their religion.Kamal Haasan, Actor
