“It’s kind of surprising. I hope they don’t watch my films. I am sure it’s probably a connect from music, television… that medium has always had a great impact. Because in many small cities my songs are played in radios so there is certain connection from there,” Emraan told reporters during a felicitation for winners of the second edition of ‘Art from the Heart’.
Watch Viswaroopam @ Home for Rs 1000
Universal hero Kamal Haasan is always a trendsetter when it comes to movies, And his latest idea of simultaneous TV release of his upcoming movie ‘Vishwaroopam’ had created a stir across the nation. The bilingual is expected to be released in on Direct-To-Home (DTH) platform a few hours before the theatrical release of the film. The decision regarding this movie is awaited but sources says the various plans concerning its implementation has already been made.
“My film (`Vishwaroopam`) will have a release via DTH before it hits the theatres. It will be a one time show and I`m certain that it will help the producers find a new revenue stream. The cost of watching the film on DTH will be approximately Rs.1,000,” said Kamal in a press statement.
Regarding the potential loss of theatre audience, Kamal said that, “If only three percent of population in Tamil Nadu use DTH services, then how much loss can one show of my film possibly cause the producers or theatre owners? In fact, to telecast the film on DTH will serve as a teaser to attract more audiences to cinemas.”
