Written and directed by Universal hero Kamal Haasan, the first instalment of “Viswaroopam” raised enough controversies that stalled film’s release for a year. Only after Kamal cried openly during a press meet, some forces finally stopped opposing the movie.
Years later, with Viswaroopam 2 hitting the cinemas and the film’s trailer not showcasing anything controversial, now the very same forces are busy making an issue out of it. This time, they have targeted Music director Ghibran whose name on the new posters is spelt in a different way.
Generally, the composer prefers his name to be printed as either Ghibran or M Ghibran, but this time Viswaroopam 2 posters printed it as “Mohammad Ghibran”. Whatever the name may be, his good music speaks for himself, not the name. But few felt that the name change is made only to attract particular community and hence a TV channel started a debate regarding it.
During the prime time, this channel hosted a debate with six people talking about it. While Ghibran clarified that he wants to change his name as to show dedication to God and also he did it with this film because of the way Kamal sir gave a turning point with this film. Still, some have a problem with his name it seems.
