Chennai, Apr 7: It seems Tamil actor Kamal Haasan's upcoming movie Uttama Villain too is going to be mired into controversies. Right wing organisation Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has reportedly demanded for ban over its release saying a song in the film hurts religious sentiments of Hindus.
This will further affect the film's release which has already been rescheduled once.
As per media reports, members of VHP's Tamil Nadu unit have approached the police commissioner of Chennai to press for a ban with a complaint against the film.
Speaking to mediapersons, the members alleged the lyrics of a song in the Tamil film has belittled a conversation between Prahalad (a devotee of Lord Vishnu) and his father Hiranyakashipu (demon king).
Expressing its displeasure against the song, released online recently, the outfit has claimed that it has hurt the sentiments of the Hindu community. The VHP workers even condemned the actor and demanded the film be banned.
The new release date of Uthama Villain will only be decided after the film undergoes certification from the Censor Board.
Kamal Haasan had recently mentioned that problems never cease to follow him and the sudden delay of Uthama Villain and VHP's protest is the latest example of what he exactly meant. Earlier, nationwide protests erupted during the release of his previous film Vishwaroopam.
Uttama Villain is directed by Ramesh Aravind and jointly produced by N Lingusamy of Thirrupathi Brothers and Kamal Haasan. The movie is all set to be distributed by Eros International.
