Actor Kamal Haasan may not fight the ban on his film Viswaroopam in the Supreme Court on Thursday, reports quoting sources said.

As of now, the film has been banned in the state till February 6.

Reports said several actors and directors in Chennai were speaking to the government on Kamal´s behalf and the actor wanted to wait and see if a breakthrough was achieved.

On Wednesday, Kamal said he would leave Tamil Nadu and India if required to stay in a secular place to just remain an artist who is godless.

"I want to stay in a secular state. I will find another state other than Tamil Nadu from Kashmir to Kerala to stay. If I do not find I will stay in another country which is secular," he said in an emotional press conference here, adding that he has mortgaged his entire property to the financier of the film and would lose it all.

"I want to be a secular man. I want to stay where these things do not touch me," he said.

"MF Hussain-saab had to go out of India for the same reason. I am just an artist. I am godless. I am fed up," he said.
