When south Indian actor Kamal Haasan announced that he will not release Vishwaroop on January 11th, He became unavailable for any comments to media. Later the actor proceeded with his official statement on releasing the movie on January 25th. And now we hear that Vishwaroop will only have a Theatrical release.
The film, which will release on the big screen on January 25, will premiere on TV via the direct-to-home (DTH) platform at a later date. “It will definitely release on the DTH platform but some time after the theatre release. I am working with my DTH partners on the exact dates and will announce that when we have decided." said Kamal Haasan in Chennai. The actor had dropped plans to premiere the film on DTH platform after keeping in mind the good health of the industry as quoted by a Source.
The CEO of Airtel (DTH), Shashi Arora, said Airtel Digital TV had credited back the booking amount paid by subscribers for the intended DTH premiere of Vishwaroopam. In fact, They are waiting for the actor's production house Rajkamal Films to communicate the date when it would release the movie on video-on-demand on DTH.
