“I am extremely happy that we are coming out with the trailer of Vishwaroopam 2. I have to thank you all for the patience you have had for this sequel and the constant love and support has not gone unnoticed. This film is very close to me and everyone who is a part of this film has worked very hard. I also want to thank Aascar Films and V Ravichandran. It is the faith of the people in our work that makes us stronger. I hope you all like what we have made with love and passion for you all, ” said Kamal Haasan had said in a statement.
Vishwaroopam 2 is a sequel to Kamal’s controversial 2013 film Vishwaroopam. It has taken quite a while to see the daylight due to financial reasons. Last year, Kamal’s own production house took the film over from Aascar Films to finish the post-production and whip it in shape for release. Notably, Vishwaroopam 2 will also be the first Kamal film to hit the screens after his political plunge. Meanwhile, the actor will be hosting the second season of Bigg Boss Tamil, which is set to air from June 17.
