As many as 40 theatres in Coimbatore, Tirupur and the Nilgiris districts have decided to screen Kamal Haasan’s film “Viswaroopam.”

There was uproar among distributors and exhibitors, after Kamal Haasan, the producer and actor, decided to screen the film through Direct to Home (DTH). However, in the talks held by distributors and exhibitors on Monday, it was decided to screen the film in 40 theatres in the three-districts, said S. Shivakumar of Cosmo Village Pictures. The screening would take place only in stand-alone and individual theatres and a consensus was yet to be reached as far as multiplexes were concerned.
