A Christian fringe group led by a priest has approached the Chennai city police commissioner demanding a ban on the film for it being "anti-Christian"!
The group Christhuva Jananayaga Katchi (CJK) found certain scenes in the film to be objectionable and depicts christians in bad light! The organisaton members have met Chennai city police Commissioner and requested him to ban Kadal from screening.
The CJK are also demanding that seven scenes, the same number of scenes objected by Muslim communities in Vishwaroopam, be deleted from the film!
They submitted a memorandum to police in this regard on Monday.
'Kadal' is the latest offering of Ratnam and has actors Arjun and Aravind Samy in leading roles besides Gautham and Thulasi, children of yesteryear stars Karthik and Radha.
Haasan's 'Vishwaroopam' had faced hurdles after Muslim groups opposed it claiming the film offended their sentiments.
The state government had banned it, following which Haasan moved the Madras high court. A single judge's order of allowing its release was struck down by a bench.
Haasan and the Muslim outfits arrived at a compromise at a government-brokered meeting on Saturday. Following this, the actor withdrew his petition today against the ban and announced that the trilingual Rs. 100-crore movie would be released in Tamil Nadu on Feb 7.
The actor made the announcement soon after both he and government withdrew their petitions before the high court.
