The film was initially supposed to be helmed by Selvaraghavan however the duo parted ways and Kamal decided to wield the megaphone for this project, where his younger daughter Akshara Haasan is assisting him in direction.
The film is touted to be made in a whooping budget of 150 crore rupees and is produced by Kamal Haasan and PVP Cinema. Music is by Shankar Ehsaan Loy.
A major hunt was on for the heroine and several changes were made. Names right from Sonakshi Sinha to Vidya Balan to Sameera Reddy were buzzed for this spot whereas Pooja Kumar bagged the role.
Rahul Bose plays baddie and Andrea Jeremiah will be seen in a pivotal role. There are some high voltage action scenes Kamal and Rahul Bose will be seen in and it is said that the duo pulled these off without a body double!
However, everything about the concept of the film has been kept under wraps and has been closely guarded by Kamal. Rumours are abuzz that Rahul Bose plays a terrorist in this flick.
‘Viswaroopam’ is taking shape in a fast pace and has extended post production work scheduled.
