All eyes are on Kamal Haasan once again. But this time, it isn’t about his political endeavours. Kamal turns director once again for Vishwaroopam 2. While the Tamil trailer of the film was launched by his actor-musician daughter Shruti Haasan, Jr NTR and Aamir Khan unveiled the Telugu and Hindi trailer, respectively.
Vishwaroopam met with huge success after it ran into several controversies on the road to the theatres. Vishwaroopam 2 has acquired a U/A certificate and will hit the screens on August 10 after lying in the cans for quite some time. While the film will be presented by Raaj Kamal Films International in Tamil and Telugu, it will be presented by Rohit Shetty and Reliance Entertainment in Hindi. Raaj Kamal Films took over after the producers Aascar Films ran into financial trouble.
Vishwaroopam 2 also stars Shekhar Kapur, Waheeda Rehman, Rahul Bose, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Jaideep Ahlawat, Nasser, Anant Mahadevan, Yusuf Hussain and Rajendra Gupta. The film will have music by Ghibran.

Vishwaroopam 2 will see Kamal make a comeback as RAW agent Wisam Ahmad Kashmiri. But we don’t get to see anything really new in the trailer. We get a few errant lines in between the stunts, like the suggestive, “Endha madham sarndhu vena irukalam, aana desa dhrogi a than iruka kudathu nu.” We also get a remixed version of the Vishwaroopam theme song “Yar endru therigiratha” which has now become “Nyabagam varugiratha”. In a crisp throwback to Vishwaroopam, a voiceover reminds us that Indian intelligence officers were integral in defusing a dirty bomb. That’s about it. Packed with action sequences, the sneak peek doesn’t reveal much about the crux of the film.
