Kamal Haasan will show his blockbuster Abhay along with Vishwaroopam to apologise for delayed DTH launch

After a delay in the release of Vishwaroopam for paid Direct to Home (DTH) audience, apologetic film-maker and actor Kamal Haasan announced that he will show his erstwhile blockbuster 'Abhay' along with the new movie on February 2.
"I am apologetic to my DTH audience which paid huge amount to watch my new launch Vishwaroopam on TV before it gets released in theatres. However, because of notorious distributors I had to postpone the launch and now I am going to show the movie to theater audience first while paid DTH audience can watch it anytime later. Just to thank my "patient yet eager audience" I will also show my mega hit 'Abhay' same day for free of cost," said Kamal Haasan.
Kamal Haasan's production house Raajkamal Films International issued a press release in which the film-maker apologized to the audience who were waiting to watch the film on DTH.
Originally Kamal Haasan planned to premiere the movie on DTH platforms a day ahead of its theatre release. However, the plan was dropped after a section of theatre owners and distributors protested, and eventually held negotiations with Kamal Haasan to change the strategy. He further said those DTH subscribers who had paid for the original premiere can get the amount refunded or adjusted against their other bills, as they deemed fit and allowed for by the respective DTH services. However, skeptical over the box office response to the film, he finally decided to show his erstwhile blockbuster Abhay at a free of cost.
Despite getting shows of Abhay at a free of cost, many people refused the offer and said that it would be better if Kamal Haasan keeps the entire sum with himself and spare them from both Vishwaroopam and Abhay.
"We are not willing to watch Abhay at any free or paid cost. Neither we want to see that tasteless Dashavatar," said M Ramalingam, a paid customer of Kamal Haasan's new epic.
He said "It is better that Kamal Haasan keeps entire money that we paid for Vishwaroopam. We are ready even if he doesn't show us Vishwaroopam."
