Financial issues settled, Kamal Haasan’s ‘Uttama Villain’ releases today!
After struggling a lot over a financial dispute, Kamal Haasan-starrer ‘Uttama Villain’ is all set to hit the silver screens today, bringing relief to the actor’s avid fans.
“All issues sorted out… ‘Uttama Villain’ releasing today all over… Thanks to all who supported for the film to get released,” Haasan’s publicist Nikkil Murugan posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
The film is expected to hit the screens today at 11am, industry sources said. Earlier, hectic parleys were held throughout the night to settle a financial dispute between the producers and some people.
Tweets from ANI also confirmed that Uttama Villain would be releasing today.
@ANI_news- “Kamal Haasan’s much-awaited movie “Uttama Villain” to release today.”
@ANI_news- “Movie “Uttama Villain” was supposed to release yesterday but was delayed which angered fans who staged protest and raised slogans.”
The film, originally slated for a typical Friday release, had hit a roadblock following financial issues. The 60-year-old star’s fans, who had thronged the theatres across Tamil Nadu in to watch Haasan’s latest movie, met with a huge disappointment, when they realised that the film wasn’t in theaters. Uttama Villain had earlier crossed legal hurdles with a court declining to stay the film.
Vishva Hindu Parishad had objected to the portrayal of Lord Vishnu in the film. Haasan’s earlier directorial venture, ‘Vishwaroopam’, had also run into great trouble after various Muslim groups had objected to the portrayal of the community in it.
Uttama Villain also stars Haasan’s mentor, the veteran director K Balachander, Andrea, Urvasi, Pooja Kumar and others. Ramesh Aravind has directed the film with Gibran scoring the music.
