Looks like it is raining controversies in Tamil land. Even before Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam managed a way out of the ban, acclaimed filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s much-awaited movie Kadal (Kadali in Telugu) is in the midst of a controversy over a titillating lip-lock involving the teenage lead pair. Some social activists and film personalities have objected to the scene and asked why should filmmakers not adhere to a code of conduct and exercise restraint. Surprisingly, the heroine, Thulasi Nair, is barely 15 years old and has not yet completed her schooling.
