After a long time, the awaited theatrical trailer of Actor Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2 is out. Kamal Hassan met the media on Monday in Chennai at his Alwarpet residence for the launch of the trailer and said he is fully prepared for any political hurdles that might come in the way.
The first part of the movie too had to face the same problems which the second part is doing now. The ruling party of ADMK Government created a lot of issues earlier and indirectly hinting at them Kamal Hasan said,
The first part was delayed because of various oppositions. The reason for the delay in releasing the second part is also the same. This time, I’m prepared to face those hurdles. I was forced to screen my film Vishwaroopam to a few organisations but it will not happen now,”
Vishwaroopam 2 can be considered as both prequel and sequel to Vishwaroopam. All the questions on Wisam Ahmad Kashmiri (Kamal’s character in the film) are answered in this movie. This film will have extreme action sequences and emotional factor. The actor confirmed the release date of the film to be 10 August in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
“We are happy to say that a Tamil film is all set to have a humongous release which is usually possible for Hollywood films. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Vishwaroopam 2 will be releasing in theaters across the globe. Rohit Shetty and Reliance Entertainment are our distributors for the Hindi version. In Tamil and Telugu, my Raaj Kamal Films International and Aascar Films will take care of the release,” said the actor.
However, the movie is not going to have politically motivated dialogues. “Dialogues in Vishwaroopam 2 will be true to its genre,” said Haasan. He confirmed the political flavor in his Indian 2, which will have a strong opinion on the flaws in the system.
“I should thank Nassar who has almost become the company artist of Raaj Kamal Films. Rahul Bose plays a powerful villain in the film. Andrea and Pooja Kumar are the two female leads. My good friend Shekhar Kapur, who essays an important role in the film, says he wants to direct a film with me in the lead. I’ve replied to him on Twitter saying he should probably make the film soon because later, he would end up only making a political documentary with me. Many technicians including my editor Mahesh Narayanan (director of National Award-winning Take Off) have become directors now ,” said Haasan.
Kamal while talking about the film’s music composer Ghibran said, “Usually, composing session would begin in peaceful locales like Mahabalipuram but Ghibran and I started the musical journey in Delhi. We had discussed why the raga ‘Desh’ is used for our National Anthem. In the same raga, Ghibran has given a tune for us. Though Vairamuthu hasn’t physically sat with us for composition, we used his lyrics and paid him too,”
He also thanked his ex-live-in partner Gautami for her efforts and cooperation for her work in Vishwaroopam 2 and making it possible.
Haasan also praised Atul Tiwari for his contribution in the Hindi version and Prasoon Joshi for the Hindi lyrics.
