The Madras High court division bench has stayed the release of Kamal Haasan’s controversial film Vishwaroopam. It has asked him to approach a single bench to file a counter appeal.
The next hearing is scheduled on Monday. The Censor Board had cleared the film for its release but the Tamil Nadu government had imposed a ban on the same following protests by certain sections of the society, who alleged that the film showed Muslims in bad light. However, the Madras High Court had stayed the ban on the film Tuesday.
But the government counsel aproached the division bench, who granted a stay on the order given by Justice Venkataraman.
