Universal Hero Kamal Hassan has revived his much-delayed film, Vishwaroopam-2. The movie is all set for a grand release on August 10th. The makers are gearing up to begin their promotions with the audio release event on August 2nd in Hyderabad. A new trailer from the film will also be released very soon. The movie will lock horns with Nithin’s Srinivasa Kalyanam which releases on August 9th.
Vishwaroopam-2 has completed most of its shoot couple of years ago and the leftover parts were completed recently. The movie release is put on hold as Aascar Ravichandran who holds the movie rights, plunged into deep financial crisis after the disastrous result of Shankar and Vikram’s I. Kamal moved on from the project and had three releases after that – Uttama Villain, Papanasanam, and Cheekati Rajyam. He also began the shooting of his other film, Sabash Naidu and stalled it due to an injury. Kamal Hassan brought back the film rights from him and is going to release the film himself. Pooja Kumar, who was also seen in Kamal Hassan’s Uttama Villain, will be seen romancing the actor in the film. The film has an ensemble cast consisting of veteran actors like Rahul Bose and Shekhar Kapoor. Bollywood music trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has composed music for the film.
