According to reports, the film might hit screens in February. However, an official confirmation from Kamal is still awaited.

The film was appreciated for its technical brilliance and Kamal's performance. The stupendous success of "Vishwaroopam" has increased the expectations on the sequel. According to Kamal, "Vishwaroopam 2" will be bigger and better than its prequel. But it remains to be seen if the film will repeat the success achieved by "Vishwaroopam."

Written and directed by Kamal, "Vishwaroopam 2" also has Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Shekar Kapur, Rahul Bose, Waheeda Rahman and Anant Mahadevan in pivotal roles.

While "Vishwaroopam" was mostly set in foreign locales, the sequel is set in India. According to reports, the film will be high on emotional content - there is a mother-son angle.
