Kamal has to move court or govt, says his brother
"As a common man, we have only two options: One, we can appeal to the state government. Two, we can approach the court." This was how Chandrahasan, actor Kamal Haasan's brother and co-partner in the actor's film production company Rajkamal International, described the actor's predicament with his big ticket film struggling to release in Tamil Nadu-- Vishwaroopam.
Emerging out of the Madras high court, which is hearing the actor's plea to stay the state authorities' prohibitory orders against the film, he said they estimated the loss, due to the delay in the film's release in Tamil Nadu, to be in the region of about Rs 30 crore to Rs 80 crore.
Denying that the film had anything which would hurt the sentiments of any community, Chandrahasan said only Kamal can decide on whether to cut or not to cut any scene in the film.
"It is a writer's or director's prerogative to cut something or not to cut," he said.
Noting that Kamal had just returned from the U.S., he said he would wake up the actor from his jet lag and inform him about the court developments.
On Monday morning, Justice K Venkataraman had advised the actor to try to negotiate and arrive at an amicable settlement of the issue. He is scheduled to hear the actor's petitions against the prohibitory orders on Tuesday.
