Kamal HaasanVishwaroopam 2 not my arrogance, it's confidence: Kamal Haasan

Kamal Haasan is all set to bring the sequel to his last controversial outing Vishwaroopam 2 and the veteran actor-director says he is confident that the second part will be successful.

Haasan, 58, who plays the lead character of Major Wisam Ahmad Kashmiri in the film, faced many hurdles in its release after Madras High Court banned the film in Tamil Nadu.

The political storm over the release of Vishwaroopam affected Haasan financially as he had pledged his property to make the multi-crore movie. The issue was resolved after a delay of two weeks.

Haasan does not feel that he is moving too fast with the sequel, considering the troubles he faced in the release of the first film.

"I don't make film for publicity rather I want my film to be enjoyed by my audience. Generally, people wait for a year and then decide a film's sequel. But, I was sure from the beginning that I will bring the second part too. Vishwaroopam 2 is not my arrogance rather it is my confidence," Haasan told PTI on the sidelines of IIFA awards.

The actor, who is also the writer and director, said he had written the story in two parts.

"I had written the film in two parts and wanted to tell my audience the complete story. We decided to do in a two parts so that individually both the parts can work," he said.

The new film, which is currently in the shooting stage, will explore the emotional angle of human relationship.

"I am aware of the fact that my first film went through many hurdles as people created issues with it without watching it. The second part is both a sequel and prequel and it will focus on the romantic and emotional aspect now. It will be technologically more advanced. We have shot a scene underwater too," Haasan said.
