A day after an accord was reached between actor Kamal Haasan and Muslim organisations, the authorities on Sunday ordered lifting of the ban on screening the Tamil film, Vishwaroopam, in Tamil Nadu.

In Chennai, the ban, imposed under Section 144 of the Cr. PC, was lifted by Police Commissioner S. George, while in other parts of the State, it was left to Collectors to do so.

Mr. George told The Hindu that “we have assessed the situation. As the two parties have arrived at an understanding, we are sure that there will not be any agitation. Hence we have revoked the ban.”
