Vishwaroopam row: Five places where Kamal Hassan can seek refuge| Last Updated: February 1, 2013 at 4:04 PM
Indian movie ace Kamal Hassan threatened to leave Tamil Nadu and even India if the ban on his magnum opus Vishwaroopam is not lifted. Turning a blind eye to his threat and later retraction, fringe elements continue to stonewall Vishwaroopam from hitting the theatres. Travel.india.com lists five places in case Kamal has a change of heart and reconsiders his decision to flee.
Well, who better than the Sultan-e-Hind Gharib Nawaz Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti shrine to appeal to for some reason to prevail. With no solution in sight to unlock the stalemate, we suggest Kamal to rush to Ajmer post-haste and pray fervently. No one has returned empty-handed as the saint answers every prayer. For good measure, Kamal could head to the nearby Pushkar.
It’s the Bohemian capital discovered by the Hippies. Though Hippies have long gone, Baga continues to be all things hippy and hep. In case Kamal walks down the sandy beaches, women, wine and the waves are sure to provide cheer to the Tamil movie star. We suggest Kamal take with him the office bearers of Tamil
Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam.
In case Baga doesn’t help, Kamal should fly to Manali. Rivetting snowscapes, winter chill and pristine air would certainly cool passions. Kamal should ignore the fact that Manali is a honeymoon destination and people go there to get passionate. A tour of the Buddhist monasteries, listening to the chants of the monks and reciting the Heart Sutra would certainly provide Kamal relief of the spiritual kind if not from TMMK.
Well, the reasons are very obvious for selecting Andamans. The fact that Andamans is away from the mainland India should motivate Kamal to fly to the tropical paradise. Kamal could go snorkeling in the
turquoise sea, dabble with the dolphins, take a canoe ride and in case looking for adventure, joustle with the Jarawas. No need to tell that Jarawas are deadlier than the TMMK cadres.
Why Bhuj? Well, it is close to the international border with Pakistan. Considering that our esteemed neighbours have developed new found interest for Indian movie stars who feel insecure, it won’t be long that the Pakistan establishment and Hafiz Saed come out in support of the matinee idol.
