Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan said on Thursday that he doesn't want to move the Supreme Court as of now because he hopes for a positive outcome for his movie Vishwaroopam.

"I still have hope things may be settled with Tamil Nadu government. For now, I may wait before moving to Supreme Court," said Kamal.

On January 30, a Madras High Court bench chaired by Justice Dharma Rao reimposed the ban on the film and nullified the revocation of an earlier ban on the film by Justice K. Venkataraman on Jan 29.

The final hearing on the case is due on February 6.

The Rs 95 crore espionage thriller was originally scheduled to release in Tamil and Telugu on Jan 25, but a day before the screenings, the Tamil Nadu government imposed a two-week ban on the film after some Muslim groups complained that some scenes in the film portrayed the community in a bad light.

Kamal Wednesday also agreed to cut a few scenes that were pointed out as controversial to him by his Muslim brothers.

"My Muslim brothers have pointed out few scenes in my film which I'm ready to cut in order to settle the matter between us amicably," said Kamal.

Kamal, 58, described the ban as "cultural terrorism" and added: "Any neutral and patriotic Muslim will surely feel pride on seeing my film. It was designed for that purpose."

Vishwaroopam was also initially banned in places such as Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Malayasia.

Written, produced and directed by Kamal, "Vishwaroopam" features him in the title role. Other members of the cast include Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Rahul Bose, Shekhar Kapur and Jaideep Ahlawat.

Its Hindi version "Vishwaroop" is slated to release Friday.
