Kamal Hassan removes the vulgar song from his film.

Reports say that Kamal Hassan has removed the vulgar song he has penned for the movie "Manmadan Ambu". But that does not come without some riders!

He has said that he would not have removed the song if the film is his own production. He has the Censor certificate to support his stance. If that had happened, the issue would be whether such a certificate was duly given or was bought (வழங்கப்பட்டதா? அல்லது வாங்கப்பட்டதா?), as there is no sector that is beyond doubt in Tamilnadu – more so if that is connected with the Film world or with politicians. But Kamal has brought to our attention an interesting reason for dropping that song. The production house of the film did not want to make this song become the focus of adverse attention. That it is owned by the grand son of Karunanidhi makes this justification an interesting one. It seems the lethal combination of money, films and politics can become sensitive to the people's feelings only if elections are nearing!




Dec. 20: Putting an end to the controversy raging over the song in his latest film Manmadan Ambu, actor Kamal Haasan on Monday said the song scene would be "deleted from the movie in the interest of all religions".

"Though the song has gained popularity, the decision to delete the song has been made with a view to ensure people of all faiths see and enjoy the film. Had it been my production, I would have released the censor board certification which did not object to the contents. But the film from Red Giant Movies belongs to Mr Udhayanidhi Stalin," said Kamal.

His announcement comes a day after he said in Kochi during the promotion of the flick that he would not delete the song.

The Hindu Makkal Katchi objected to the song saying it hurt the sentiments of Hindus. The song Kannodu Kannai Kalandhal reportedly speaks about a woman's desire and has references to deities Aranganathar and Sri Varalakshmi. Kamal has penned the lyrics and sung it with Trisha.

Dear Mam,

though one cannot support issues happened on ban to latest Kamal movie Viswaroopam.

but why this person always gets into controversy? God knows its intentional or unintentional.

irony is he says that if a producer he would not remove vulgar song in Manmadha ambu. now we will watch how compromises are made as a producer of Viswaroopam? its writing on wall that karma has invited this controversy.

From what I read in TOI, he has portrayed the real incidents with Taliban and a more speculated incident of the Taliban kingpin taking shelter in Coimbatore. This part is damaging but at the same time raises the patriotic credibility of Indian / TN Muslims. Would they put nation before their religious affinity - is a question that a Muslim must answer. What we dare not ask, Kamal has given vent in his film. I think he has done this unwittingly and perhaps to sound more realistic to his foreign audience. The motive is obviously to get commendation from foreign audience and to get money from Indian audience. It is totally for these personal motives he had made scenes like this. To praise him for anything other than these is to deceive ourselves.

Is Karma is coming back to him? Yes. He had all good heart for minorities - recall the portrayal of a tall Muslim in Dasavathara, but would never hesitate to belittle Hindus and Brahmins. Those whom he nurtured must kick him back some day.'VaLartha kadaa maarbil paayuthu". I don't think Muslims would easily forget and forgive him.
