Vishwaroopam 2 will be on par with Hollywood films: Kamal Haasan
Kamal Haasan is someone known for striving to be unique in all his films. Most of his works have been far ahead of its time, some for the themes and some for the high end technological aspects that he brings in. His 2013 spy-thriller Vishwaroopam was no different. The project conceived as a two-part installment has Haasan playing a RAW agent who works in disguise with the Afghan terrorists. While the first part was a huge success, the second part (more of a prequel), Vishwaroopam 2, is gearing up to hit screens.
Kamal Haasan sounded very confident about Vishwaroopam 2 in a recent interview. According to him, V2 is not only a sequel, but also an action packed prequel. He assured that the film will be on par with any Hollywood film. The movie’s recently released trailer met with great response from viewers in social medias. The trailer is loaded with some high voltage action moments. Though the VFX shots look tacky, reports suggest that the movie’s post-production works are still underway.
Though Vishwaroopam faced several hurdles prior to its release, it emerged as a big blockbuster doing a lifetime business of over 100 crores. The second part is also expected to repeat the same success. The movie was unfortunately shelved for a long time before Kamal Haasan’s own production house Raajkamal Films International took over the project.
Vishwaroopam 2’s cast also includes Bollywood actor Rahul Bose, Andrea Jeremiah, Pooja Kumar, Waheeda Rahma and Shekhar Kapur. The technical team comprises of cinematographers Shamdat Sainudeen, Sanu Varghese and editor Mahesh Narayanan. Ghibran handles the music department. The makers have officially announced that the movie will be releasing worldwide on August 10.
