When i choose the desired iso file to run it on the Boxes as a virtual machine, it fails and gives the following error msg..

"SELinux is preventing qemu-system-x86 from open access on the file /run/media/vishuu/Study/OS/ubuntu-14.04.4-desktop-amd64.iso.

Plugin: catchallboolean you want to allow qemu-system-x86 to have open access on the ubuntu-14.04.4-desktop-amd64.iso fileIf you want to allow virt to use fusefs You must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'virtusefusefs' boolean. You can read 'None' man page for more details. setsebool -P virtuse_fusefs 1"

Please help me to resolve this.

The message tells you exactly what to do. Run setsebool -P virt_use_fusefs 1 as root. Or you could copy the iso file onto the hard drive.
