Vishwaroopam 2, the sequel to Kamal Haasan's blockbuster Vishwaroopam (2013), is finally arriving at its destined release date. Having seen a number of obstructions over content and distribution, the actor tweeted that he is 'personally involved' in getting the film released now.
The sequel to the 2013 blockbuster was set to release earlier this year, however, incessant delays and problems with the producer proved a roadblock.

Fans rejoicing at the news might want to take it with a pinch of salt. The actor warned that it might be six more months before post-production on the film is completed. He wrote:
