Happy to be small part of 'Vishwaroopam': Shekhar Kapur

Mumbai, Jan 26 (IANS) Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur is proud of acting in Kamal Haasan's dream project "Vishwaroopam", which is currently banned in Tamil Nadu.

Mumbai, Jan 26 — Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur is proud of acting in Kamal Haasan's dream project "Vishwaroopam", which is currently banned in Tamil Nadu.

"'Vishwaroopam'. A man's dream to prove Indian cinema stands at par with the world. Kamal Haasan has put everything into it and I wish him the best. I am just happy to be a small part of Kamal Haasan's dream in 'Vishwaroopam'. As I watched him calm and resolute in crisis, I came to admire him much more," Kapur posted on Twitter.

"Vishwaroopam", written, directed and produced by Haasan, deals with the adversities of war.

The Tamil and Telugu versions of the film were scheduled to release Friday, but the Tamil Nadu government Wednesday imposed curbs on it following protests from Muslim groups. Certain Muslim organisations protested saying the movie portrays the community in bad light.

The film features Haasan, besides Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Rahul Bose, Jaideep Ahlawat and Kapur.

The movie's Hindi version "Vishwaroop" will release Feb 1.
