Members of Hindu Vishwa 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 Hindus.

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," said a VHP member K.L Sathiyamoorthy.

Directed by Ramesh Aravind, the movie is about an 8th century theatre artist and a modern-day superstar.
