A sequel to the hit film ‘Vishwaroopam’, the spy thriller is directed by Kamal Haasan who also plays the lead in the movie.
Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2, which has been on the back burner for a long time, resumed the final schedule last November and was wrapped up soon after.
Recently, the Tamil and Telugu versions of Vishwaroopam 2 completed the censor formalities and obtained a U/A certificate. According to reports, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has ordered 17 cuts in the film. While a section of the board members reportedly recommended a U/A certificate, others wanted to certify the film U.
Vishwaroopam 2, a sequel to the hit film Vishwaroopam, is directed by Kamal Haasan who also plays the main lead. Although shot as a single film, the makers planned to release it in two parts due to its length. It follows the story of an Indian spy, played by Haasan himself, who befriends a notorious terrorist, played by Rahul Bose, and tries to bring down his empire. The first part was lauded for its high octane action and taut screenplay.
The flick also stars Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Shekhar Kapur, Waheedha Rahman and others. While the first part had music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, the music for the sequel is composed by Ghibran.
Sanu Varghese and Shamdat Sainudeen handled the camera while Mahesh Narayanan was roped in for editing. Vishwaroopam 2 involves a lot of VFX, which is one of the major reasons for the delay in its release. Produced by Raaj Kamal International, Aascar Film Pvt Ltd and Balaji Motion Pictures, the film’s distribution rights have been acquired by Eros International.
Kamal, who recently confirmed that he will be hosting the second season of reality show Bigg Boss Tamil, also has Indian 2 with director Shankar in his kitty, which will start rolling soon. The project will only go on the floors after Shankar is completely relieved off 2.0 while Kamal is expected to wrap up Vishwaroopam 2 and Sabash Naidu.
