A teaser of the film Vishwaroopam 2 will be released during Ramzan.

After being in cold storage for many months, the second part of Vishwaroopam franchise, long due for release, has been revived and work has recommenced on the project which is expected to hit the screens later this year, according to trusted sources. Nearly two weeks of shooting and major post-production work is pending on the project but our reliable sources from the film’s unit have confirmed the teaser of the film is being planned to release for Ramzan and the movie will hit the screens this Diwali.

Although shot as a single film, due to its length, Vishwaroopam was planned to be released in two parts. It follows the story of an Indian spy, played by Haasan himself, who befriends a notorious terrorist, played by Rahul Bose, and tries to bring down his empire. The first part was lauded for its high-octane action and taut screenplay. One of the highlights of the film was the scene where Haasan is seen transforming into a mean killing machine from an effervescent Kathak dancer. The second will be more intense than the first and is loaded with action and will be highly emotional.

Also starring Andrea Jeremiah, Pooja Kumar and Shekhar Kapoor, the film has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. In May, Rajesh Selva, long-time associate of Haasan, in a tweet confirmed that the project has been revived and all the pending work will be wrapped up soon.
