"Vishwaroopam 2" first look posterOfficial facebook page/ / Kamal Haasan

It is well known that actor Kamal Haasan is all set to have two releases this year. The actor has finished shooting his upcoming projects - "Uttama Villain" and "Vishwaroopam 2".

Speculations were rife as to which film will hit the screens first. Now, the actor has confirmed that his comedy drama "Uttama Villain" will hit the screens ahead of "Vishwaroopam 2."

A source close to Kamal has said that there are lots of graphics work involved in the spy thriller flick, which has resulted in the film's delay, and added that it will release only after "Uttama Villain," according to IANS Live.

"Vishwaroopam 2" is the sequel to the 2013-release "Vishwaroopam", which turned out to be a huge blockbuster. The sequel has retained most of the actors from the first part, including Kamal, Rahul Bose, Shekar Kapur, Pooja Kumar and Andrea Jeremiah. Veteran Bollywood actress Waheeda Rahman and Anant Mahadevan are the new additions to the sequel.

"Vishwaroopam" focused more on action, but the second part will reportedly focus on romantic and emotional aspects.

The first look poster of "Vishwaroopam 2" was released last year. The film was expected to hit the screens in 2013, but its post-production works delayed the release.

Kamal has directed the film, while its music is composed by Ghibran. The big budget action drama is produced by Aascar Films.

"Uttama Villain" is a comedy drama about an ageing superstar. The film has Kamal appearing in dual roles - as an 8th century drama actor (Uttaman) and a 21st century film star (Manoranjan).

The film boasts of an ensemble cast, including veteran directors Balachander and K. Vishwanath, Jayaram, Urvasi, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, M. S. Bhaskar, Nassar and Parvathy Menon among others.

The shooting of "Uttama Villain" was wrapped on 9 August. The film's team is now busy with its post-production work.

The first look teaser of "Uttama Villain", showing Kamal with a painted face, was released in March and received fantastic responses.

The comedy drama, directed by actor Ramesh Aravind, is expected to hit the screens for Dussehra this October. It might clash with Siva Karthikeyan's "Taana", which is also expected to release around the same time.

"Uttama Villain" music is also composed by Ghibran and the film is produced by Thirrupathi Brothers and Raaj Kamal Films International.
