Several actresses were considered to play the heroine but at last Andreah has been signed. Isha Sharvani, one of Bollywood’s best classical dancers, who is reportedly dating Indian bowler Zaheer Khan, will also play a pivotal role (as Kamal Hassan’s sister) in the film.
Kamal is not only directing the film but also written the screenplay, dialogues and even lyrics for Vishwaroopam. Vishwaroopam will be a trilingual made simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. It is being said that this will be the costliest Indian film ever made.
Kamal Hassan intends to shoot Vishwaroopam in 100 days across UK and Europe. Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy who had earlier scored music for Kamal Hassan films like Aalavanthan were roped in to score music for this film. Telephoto Films is producing the film.
