The Madras High Court on Monday orally asked parties concerned to explore all possibilities to amicably settle the issue relating to the release of Vishwaroopam, starring Kamal Hassan, in the State.
When the batch of writ petitions from Rajkamal Films International, which sought to lift the ban imposed under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) by the City Police Commissioner on January 23 for 15 days, and other petitions supporting the ban from Muslim individuals and organisations came up, Justice K Venkataraman asked the parties to explore the possibilities, taking note of the unity of the nation.
The film was specially screened for the judge and others here on Saturday.
The judge, however, did not comment on whether the film contained any objectionable scenes or dialogues — either on Saturday or on Monday.
Rajkamal International’s senior counsel P S Raman said he would file a separate petition challenging the ban on the film under Section 144 of the CrPC.
He would also file petitions challenging the ban orders of the 32 district collectors, individually.
