On Sunday evening Kamal Haasan confirmed that his Vishwaroopam will be shown on DTH. It will be a one-time show on DTH, a few hours before the film releases in theatres.
Kamal claims that he is doing it for producers who will get a new revenue stream. It will be the first time a film will be shown on DTH anywhere in the world, before its theatrical release.
Kamal Haasan says Vishwaroopam on DTH will cost approximately Rs 1000 for one pay per view. He claims the DTH technology is such that it cannot be downloaded and pirated.
