Shekhar Kapur was part of Vishwaroopam and he will also be seen in Vishwaroopam 2.

The announcement of the release date of Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2 was followed by an interesting Twitter exchange between the actor and director Shekhar Kapur, who played a pivotal role in Vishwaroopam. Thanking Kamal for giving him the opportunity, Shekharl wrote, “All the best @ikamalhaasan for #Vishwaroopam2 and thank you for including me in the cast. Despite me be being such an awkward actor. But I learnt so much from you on the sets. Next time I direct, and you act!”

To this, Kamal responded, “Thanks @shekharkapur . We have been planning that movie for nearly 35 years. We have to speed up or all we can do is a political documentary In that case I won’t have to act at all.” The actor recently floated his political party, Makkal Needhi Maiam, and intends to focus on politics in the future.

Kamal played the role of Major Wisam Ahmed Kashmiri who goes undercover to root out sleeper cells of a terrorist organisation while Shekhar played an intelligence officer.

Vishwaroopam 2, directed by Kamal Haasan is slated to hit screens on August 10 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film’s trailer is expected to be revealed by Aamir Khan and Jr NTR on Monday.
