Filmmaker Kamal Haasan's brother Chandra Haasan met Tamil Nadu Home Secretary R. Rajagopal Friday along with leaders of 24 Muslim groups in a bid to end the ban on the film "Vishwaroopam".

"There are seven to eight minutes of the film that need to edited," said Mohammed Hanifa on behalf of the Muslim organisations, which complained that certain scenes were derogatory to their community.

Both sides are likely to come an amicable agreement.

Muslim leaders met Tamil filmmaker Ameer Sultan and Chandra Haasan's production company Raj Kamal Films International Thursday.

"We've submitted letters to the government requesting it to oversee the talks between Raj Kamal Films International and (Muslim) leaders", Chandra Haasan said later Thursday.

Both sides agreed to meet after Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa said her government would help Kamal Haasan release the film if he reaches a pact with the protesters.

The Rs.95 crore espionage thriller was set for release in Tamil and Telugu Jan 25, but a day earlier the Tamil Nadu government imposed a two-week ban on it fearing protests by Muslim groups.

The film's Hindi version, "Vishwaroop", released Friday.
