Malaysian authorities today lifted the ban on Tamil movie Vishwaroopam, much to the delight of ethnic Indians in the country.
Malaysian Film Censorship Board had initially approved the movie - directed and produced by Kamal Haasan - for public screening in the country and it was shown in
local cinemas on January 24.
Missing from action for a while now, Kamal Haasan is back once again. His latest film Vishwaroop is already creating a buzz among the actor's fans. Here's a look at the mega-star in his many avatars as well as the rest of the cast.
However, the approval was withdrawn the next day, in accordance with a directive from the Home Ministry following concerns from the public that the film portrays Islam in a negative light. The ban had led to the circulation of illegal DVDs among ethnic Indians here keen to see the movie.
