Hats off to our very own universal hero @ikamalhaasan sir. #Vikram #VikramHitlist." Many others retweeted the post with heart emojis.

Vikram, a Tamil film, which was dubbed and released in Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam, features Kamal in a role he originally played in the 1986 film of the same name. He returns as former agent Vikram of the coveted Black Squad, which used to work for the government. Fahadh Faasil plays the current head of the squad while Vijay Sethupathi plays a drug kingpin.

According to Hindustan Times review of the film, “Lokesh not only paid a heartfelt tribute to his ‘guru’, with Vikram – a sequel of sorts to Kamal’s 1986 film of the same name – he teased the beginning of a franchise; one that could keep Kamal active for years to come. Vikram allows Kamal to have fun, and he’s helped by Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi, who make their presence felt with strong performances."
