What’s been happening to Kamal Haasan off late is purely injustice. In India we keep on saying “Freedom of expression” but nothing of that sort    — Shambhu Nair

Kamal Haasan isn’t giving you free tickets and compelling you to watch his film. If you don’t like it, don’t watch. Why ban?        — Tharun

Kamal Haasan has rightly called the ban on his film as cultural terrorism.Why ban anything?Don’t see the film or read the book u don’t like  –                                        — S Irfan Habib

If Kamal Haasan has to go through this then I shudder to think what would be the fate if a new comer had made a film like Vishwaroopam

            — Pragdish Roy

India is a free country. Kamal Haasan has been gifted with unique talents. He has the right to express his views and creativity unobstructed.

            —  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

So now after India’s censor board clears a movie, a judge will watch it again ? #Kamal Haasan     — Sonia Singh

India, where journalists pass judgements and judges review films.

            — Ashwini Mishra

My deepest condolences to Kamal Haasan. His service to our cinema and to shaping many creative destinies needed gratitude. Not betrayal. Sad               — Siddharth

Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam to be banned in Tamil Nadu? Don’t worry Kamalji. You have fans all over India.              — Jahnavi

I totally support Kamal Haasan and his right to opine through art, though it is a different story whether i support his opinions or not.

            —  Don Ashok

Really bad move to ban Viswaroopam. Banning books and films against spirit of democracy.        — Malini Parthasarathy
