Universal Hero Kamal Hassan changed route in signing films. Although continuing to experiment with different subjects, he is doing medium range films in between is a big shocker for his followers. Viswaroopam 2 has been in post production mode since long time and the film’s release is delayed for uncountable times. Now, there is no clarity from the makers on when actually the film will grace in theaters.
Kamal Hassan ran into debts after making Viswaroopam under own production of Raj Kamal Films International. Though the film went onto become a super hit, Kamal couldn’t come out of deficits due to heavy budget spent on the project and 40% of the second part was already shot then. Kamal immediately started Viswaroopam 2. However the project is not seeing light due to many reasons, despite joining of top production houses. Albeit, the film will be high on CGI work, expensive budget is also the reason for the long delay.
After wrapping up Viswaroopam shooting, Kamal Hassan signed three films which out of these two (Papanasam and Uttama Villain) were already released, while the third one – Cheekati Rajyam begun rolling few months ago will arrive to theaters during Diwali. Buzz is that, Kamal accepted doing these medium range films only to repay debts. If things go well, Viswaroopam 2 would hit the screens early in 2016.
