Kamal Haasan has been in the eye of a storm for one reason or the other. In fact, he seems to be controversy’s favourite child with every word of his being scrutinised.
The Ulaga Nayagan, during an interview, recalled how his film Vishwaroopam was banned and re-banned in 2013 and the loss he had incurred due to it. The ace filmmaker and actor pointed out that he had lost around Rs. 60 crore in the mess and blamed the Tamil Nadu government for it.
He alleged that the motive was to destroy him. In an interview to the Deccan Chronicle, he said, “The idea behind the attack was to ruin me completely. All my property — everything — was pledged. I try to be known for humility, not for being humiliated. Unfortunately, that is what happened. I was humiliated, almost destroyed.” The star added, “I lost Rs 60 crore. For someone who pays his tax regularly, that is a crippling loss. Thanks to people, I’m still walking.”
Kamal had announced that a sequel to Vishwaroopam will be out but that is yet to happen. The actor reportedly said that he expects Vishwaroopam 2 to release without any issues but he seems sceptical for certain reasons.
