Vishwaroopam 2
First look poster of "Vishwaroopam 2" unveiled ("Vishwaroop II in Hindi)

The first look poster of Kamal Haasan's much-awaited film, "Vishwaroopam 2" (Vishwaroop II in Hindi) was unveiled on Saturday (6 July).

Like "Vishwaroopam", the poster of the sequel too looks promising.

It may be recalled that "Vishwaroopam" landed in a controversy with some Muslim groups objecting its release. The screening of the film was delayed not only in Tamil Nadu but also in other parts of the country and Malaysia. It fetched massive response for its content and earned big despite two-week delay in release. The film won accolades from all quarters and became one of the biggest grossing Tamil films this year.

Kamal is currently busy shooting the sequel to the film. He is confident that "Vishwaroopam 2" will do well like the first part.

Speaking on the sidelines of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards in Macau, Kamal told the Press Trust of India (PTI), "I don't make film for publicity rather I want my film to be enjoyed by my audience. Generally, people wait for a year and then decide a film's sequel. But, I was sure from the beginning that I will bring the second part too. 'Vishwaroopam 2' is not my arrogance rather it is my confidence."

Kamal had written the film even before the release of the first part. "I had written the film in two parts and wanted to tell my audience the complete story. We decided to do in a two parts so that individually both the parts can work," he said.

"Vishwaroopam" had more of action sequences, but the second part will be high on romantic and emotional quotient, according to Kamal. The film has used advanced technology and is all set to come in 3D sound format, also known as Auro 3D, which produces three-dimensional sound spread. 

Most of the cast from "Vishwaroopam" - Kamal Haasan, Pooja Kumar, Andrea, Shekar Kapur and Rahul Bose - has been retained for the second part too. 

"Vishwaroopam" had a run time of nearly 2 hours and 20 minutes, but the second part will run for less than 2 hours. Film's music will be composed by Ghibran and not Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy who worked in the first part.
