VHP calls for ban on Kamal Haasan's 'Uttama Villain'
Vishva Hindu Parishad’s (VHP) Tamil Nadu wing has called for a ban on the Kamal Haasan-starrer Uthama Villain.
The film, scheduled to hit the screens soon, will affect the religious sentiments of Hindu people, the outfit has claimed.
It is quite common now to have most of the big movies to go under several release issues like some party or group or community seeking bans and facing court verdicts. Members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) have called for a ban on actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan-starrer Tamil drama "Uttama Villain", claiming it will affect the religious sentiments of Hindi people.
In their statement to the commissioner of police on Monday, the group alleged that the song "Iraniyan Nadagam", about the disparaged conversation between Prahalad and Hiranyakashipu, will hurt the sentiments of Hindus.
"The lyrics of the song will upset followers of Lord Vishnu. It belittles the conversation between Prahalad and Hiranyakashipu. Hence, we demand a ban on the film," KL Sathiyamoorthy, member of VHP, told.
Directed by Ramesh Aravind, the movie is about an 8th century theater artist and a modern-day superstar.
