The Vishwaroopam premier on DTH has led to a stand-off between Kamal Haasan and Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association (TNTOA), for the last few days.
Kamal after the DTH premiere of Vishwaroopam on Thursday Jan 10 night will have the theatrical release on Friday January 11.
However due to stiff opposition by TNTOA, Vishwaroopam has not been able to get sufficient screens in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka.
The latest we hear is that after mediators stepped in Kamal Haasan and TNTOA representatives held a meeting on Monday night.
The buzz is that the talks were successful to a certain extent and a compromise formula is being worked out.
One more round of talks will take place today (Jan 8), to sort out the issue. And if both parties come to an agreement, there will be a joined official statement, later in the afternoon with all details.
