Furore in Chennai theatres as ‘Vishwaroopam’ banners are set ablaze

High court issued order lifting ban upon movie ‘Vishwaroopam’ last night.  So, there was prevalent anticipation that the movie would hit screens today. 

Following lifting of the ban, fans gathered in theatres all over Tamil Nadu.  Last night, ‘Vishwaroopam’ banner was set ablaze by a gang in Albert Theatre, Egmore.  People there extinguished the flames immediately.  The nearby TASMAC wine shop and bar escaped the fire. 

The burnt banner was wrapped up such that it was not to be seen.  Police personnel headed by Egmore Inspector Selvam were posted in the place. 

This morning, around 6 am, banner had been placed in front of Devi Theatre by Kamal Fan Club manager Ramesh and fans.  A gang which arrived at around 7 am set ablaze the banner. 

As police received information, police personnel headed by Inspector Shankar were posted in the place.  Police were posted in front of the main gate for security.  No outsider was allowed inside. 

As fans came to know that the ‘Vishwaroopam’ banner had been burnt, they gathered in front of Devi Theatre.  They condemned burning of the banner.  Fan Club head Ramesh spoke regarding the instance:-

‘Like for actors as MGR, Sivaji, Rajini and Amitabh we placed Kamal Haasan’s banner in the morning.  We were silent for the last one week.  Only after court order was issued, we placed the banner.  But, they have burnt it.’

‘Masses know the culprits.  Commoners support Kamal Haasan.  They ask us when the movie would hit screens.  Even if protests continue, our activities would follow trail of Kamal Haasan and would be peaceful.’

‘As fans gathered in front of Devi Theatre, commoners also gathered in front of the place.  Due to that, there was tension in the place. 

When enquired with police about burning of banners, they said that no such incident happened. 

There was no trace of banner having been burnt in front of Devi Theatre.  Police rushed to the spot and hid the banner.  Also, they removed ashes in the place.  Due to that, the place appeared clean.  There were signs in nearby wall which revealed burning of banner.
