Blog: I’m a Muslim Indian and I’m with Kamal Haasan

It will be in order to mention that the TMMK is an ally of Jaya’s AIADMK. But never mind. Even if, all considered, I did take the TMMK chief’s word for it – who has given him the right to decide for me? It’s for every one of us, the movie-goers, to see the film and decide for ourselves if it is a good film or a bad film. Well, many people hate so many films. If Vishwaroopam fails to impress the people or rubs one section of people the wrong way, so be it. But let it have its life at the box office.
And that’s what Kamal Haasan is fighting for. To get his film released. To recover the money spent. To make profits for all those who put their money on him. And that’s why he is today ready to cut scenes, apologise, take it all with a smile. Because he is a weak man today. Many may argue that Haasan is giving in to the pressure, but sitting on a 95-crore film, he cannot afford to play an idealist, a crusader.
Dear Kamal Haasan, I am a Muslim Indian and I am with you.
