Vikram: Complaint filed against Kamal Haasan's Pathala Pathala for taking on Union Government
The first single of Kamal Haasan's Vikram, Pathala Pathala, was released on Wednesday. And it's already courting controversy
Kamal Haasan and controversy is a never-ending story. Over the years, the actor has faced several court cases and protests against his films. The popular ones are, of course, Virumaandi (2004) and Vishwaroopam I (2013). Now, even before its release, his upcoming film, Vikram, is facing opposition. According to reports, a complaint has been filed with the Chennai Police Commissioner against the film's first single, Pathala Pathala, which takes a dig at the Union Government.
Written and sung by Kamal Haasan, Pathala Pathala has lines, "Ondriyathin thapaalae onniyum illa ippaale. Saavi ipo thirudan kaila thillalangadi thillale (Because of Union (Government)'s fault there's nothing left now)." The complaint demands such lines be removed from the song.
Meanwhile, the song, composed by Anirudh Ravichander has already raked in 10 million views on YouTube.
Vikram, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj and also starring Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil, is slated to hit the screens on June 3. The film is also in the news as Suriya is rumoured to play a cameo in it. A video clip of Suriya and Kamal on the sets of Vikram has led to the speculation.
