The movie was released in about 600 theaters across the North. Multiplex owners are expecting the advance bookings to increase towards the weekend. And on the other side, the talks between Muslim groups and Vishwaroopam makers did not progress as expected on Friday. Talks did not take place as Muslim groups want Kamal who is in Mumbai promoting Vishwaroop to be present. Kamal is back in Chennai today and will participate in the talks.
The Hindi version of Kamal Haasan’s ‘Vishwaroopam’ opened to good response in the Northern region on Friday, with multiplex owners claiming that the controversy surrounding the movie has generated more curiosity among the audience. Titled ‘Vishwaroop’, the film saw an average occupancy of about 50 to 60 per cent across theatres in north India on Friday without any untoward incident barring some protests in Lucknow.
