And the delay, though commercially affected to a large extent, seems to have garnered more attention than usual as there is a huge demand for tickets.
Advance booking for Vishwaroopam was started at some multiplexes on Tuesday (February 5) and it has got massive response. Especially, tickets for multiplexes in Chennai were in huge demand with people booking tickets in bulk. A few cinema halls will screen more number of shows than usual to meet the demand. As far as single screens are concerned, advance booking will start from today.
Sources said, "Fans of Kamal Hassan are flocking to theatres to book tickets and it is a festive time for all his fans in the state. Especially, the delay in the release has made them impatient and they can't wait to see their favourite star's film. Surely, Vishwaroopam will have the biggest opening in the recent times in Tamil Nadu."
Vishwaroopam, a dream project of Kamal Hassan, also features Pooja Kumar and Andrea Jeremiah in the female lead roles and Rahul Bose in the role of a baddie.
