The firstVishwaroopam film, which came in 2013, had proved controversial enough for its helmer and the lead actor Kamal Haasan to actually toy with the idea of leaving the country to make any further films. But, he is back with a sequel to the film about global terrorism. And this time, as the CBFC clamps down on the long-delayedVishwaroopam 2, Kamal Haasan is not willing to budge.
According to a source from the CBFC, the situation regarding the censoring of Vishwaroopam 2 is anomalous. “The film has been passed with a ‘U’ certificate in Tamil and Telugu. In Hindi, the jury is divided. Some want to give it ‘UA’ instead of ‘U’ and that too with 17 cuts.”
Regarding the proposed cuts in the Hindi version of Vishwaroopam 2, the source says, “They are largely verbal cuts, references to politics and terror outfits that need to be toned down.”
