Kamal Haasan came out with a detailed statement on Sunday, justifying his decision to air 'Viswaroopam' on DTH platform, a day ahead of its theatrical release.
"Screening Viswaroopam on DTH only once before its release will not affect collections in the box-office. Only 3 per cent of Tamil Nadu population have DTH connections in their homes," he said.
Kamal added: "In that 3 per cent, only 1.5 per cent are expected to subscribe for Viswaroopam. The film can not be recorded and it can be watched only once."
Plans are on to collect Rs 1000 per DTH connection to watch 'Viswaroopam'. "There is kitchen at each and every home. But people go to hotels. There are portraits of God at home. But people go to Tirupati and other temples," Kamal said, adding that people will sure come to theatres to watch 'Viswaroopam'.
