Kamal Hassan has revealed that he is planning a sequel to his forthcoming magnum opus Viswaroopam.
‘I am looking at a sequel to Viswaroopam. We are prepping it. I have a script in hand,’ the ‘Ulaga Nayagan’ said in his interview to The Times of India.
He added: ‘I read some media report the other day saying – ‘Kamal Hassan has overshot hence he is making a sequel.’ This is truly insulting and I would like to clarify that this is not true. I know there is scope for a sequel here. Instead of making a three and a half hour film, I decided to tell the rest of the story in a sequel.’
‘Is Viswaroopam, written, produced and directed by you, your most ambitious project?’ To this question, he replied: I’m borrowing a line from writer-filmmaker Ingmar Bergman here. He said every time I do a film I think this is the last film. It could be. We don’t really know. Hypothetically, what would I do if this were my last film?. ‘
He added: ‘I don’t know if I will be allowed to make another film. Anything unforeseen can happen. So every film that I make, I just put everything I have in it. ‘
