Salman Khan has joined the list of celebrities who have come out in support of Kamal Haasan, who is currently facing a ban on his big-budget film “Vishwaroopam’’.

“It is just a movie and there are only two kinds of movies good or bad, hit and flop and only people who decide are the ones who buy tickets. Hope each and every fan of his supports him like I am doing and want all my fans to fully support him,” Salman posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The 47-year-old also requested people to stand outside cinema halls and insist on watching the movie.

“Then go stand out side the cinema hall and insist on seeing the film, it is a movie dude, entertainment, what law and order problem on a movie? Go there insist that you wanna see it, there is a Supreme Court judgment after the film is censored no body can stop it.”

Members of the film fraternity like Shah Rukh Khan, Mahesh Bhatt and Karan Johar have also supported Haasan.

“Vishwaroopam”, which is approximately made on a Rs 100-crore budget, has been banned from being screened in Tamil Nadu after protests from some Muslim groups claiming that the film shows the religion in negative light.

The Hindi version of “Vishwaroopam” hits theatres tomorrow.
