Jayalalithaa finally opened up on her government's decision to ban Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam and said there was no political agenda behind it.
"The decks will be cleared for the film's release if Kamal Haasan and leaders of Muslim organisations sit together and work out an amicable solution. The government will facilitate that," the chief minister said.
And Kamal Haasan is taking this as an encouraging sign.
"I think Jayalalithaa has understood now. She is an artiste, she has come forward," he told a news channel. "Now that Jayalalithaa is helping us, why should I contemplate going to the Supreme Court?"
"Islam is not targeting me. It is politics, it is not religion. I just thanked Jayalalithaa that she came forward."
Meanwhile, fans gathered at the actor-director's office to give him cheques and demand drafts after the news came out that he's on the verge of bankruptcy.
"I want to tell my fans, I don't know what I did to deserve this. I am so touched," Kamal said.
The actor also thanked Bollywood stars like Salman Khan who came forward to support his film.
However, Kamal admitted that he's still not happy with how things turned out, or how he's been made to feel cornered.
"I am not saying sorry for saying I wanted to leave the country. I was angry, I still am," he said, adding that the ban on Vishwaroopam has already cost him losses between 30 and 60 crores.
