Kamal Haasan’s ambitious Tamil-language spy thriller Vishwaroopam will not release in the UAE on Thursday as scheduled. The film is still under review, an official at the National Media Council told tabloid!.

“We are yet to give our verdict on it. It touches upon sensitive subjects like Osama Bin Laden and Muslim groups. There are bombings and more killings. We need to review it very carefully,” said Juma Obaid Al Leem, director of the Media Content Tracking Department at the Council. His team is scheduled to review the film again on Sunday.
