Actor Kamal Haasan on Thursday said he suffered losses to the tune of Rs. 60 crore due to problems in the release of his magnum opus Vishwaroopam.


"The film (Vishwaroopam) is made on a budget of Rs. 95 crore. Due to the delay in the release of film, I have suffered a loss of Rs. 30 to 60 crore," the superstar said in Mumbai.

Vishwaroopam run into rough weather with some Muslim groups taking objection to certain scenes in the movie as hurting their religious sentiments.

"This film is really important for me. Maine apna sab daav pe lagaya hai (I have pledged everything for this movie...)." said Haasan who was in the city for the promotion of his film.

Thanking his fans for support, Haasan said "I have been troubled enough... I am touched... I get carried away when I talk about my fans... I don't know what I have done to deserve this love... If I say I am grateful and overwhelmed than its an understatement."

The 58-year-old actor said he could not understand the entire controversy.

"Why this thing happened?...We don't need to be insulted so badly," he added.
