Shah Rukh Khan's essay on being a Khan that was published in a weekly magazine led to a debate over his security on January 29. Just a day later, Salman Rushdie and the team of 'Midnight's Children' had to cancel their Kolkata promotional tour at the last minute. This after the local police warned about possible protests against the author by fringe muslim groups. And in the eye of this cultural storm is Kamal Haasan's fight to release his film 'Vishwaroopam' in his home turf, Tamil Nadu.
