Artists have full liberty to work: Shinde on 'Vishwaroopam'
"We are a free society. There is freedom of expression. There is liberty for artists. We have a Constitution," Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told reporters here.
He was reacting to a question on the actor's statement that Tamil Nadu does not want him to stay in the state and that he might leave.
Asked about the problems being faced in the release of 'Vishwaroopam', Shinde said there was some problem in some states and he would look into it.
"We will see. We will enquire into what has happened," he said.
Upset over the hurdles caused by the ban on the release of 'Vishwaroopam', an emotional Haasan today said Tamil Nadu does not want him to stay in the state and he might seek a "secular" place in the country or overseas.
Meanwhile, on an appeal filed by the Tamil Nadu government against the interim order of a single judge giving clearance for screening of the Tamil movie, the Madras High Court today set aside order lifting the ban.
