Kamal Hasan, the most popular actor from South India and a living legend, decided to direct a complete action thriller in early 2010's after Dasavataram.
He executed his plans really well with Viswaroopam and even though during the time, he faced many difficulties, he released the movie after several postponements in February, 2013.
The movie became a commercial success and he decided to release second part in the same year.
As the producer, Aascar Ravichandran ran into financial troubles, he had to wait for years to complete the shoot and post production.
Finally, last year he took over the movie and started post production works in USA. He even released the trailer of gthe film, recently.
Now, the date as been confirmed for 10th August, keeping Independence Day long weekend in mind. The movie seems to have lot of fun action episodes and terrorism could be depicted in a new mould once again.
