Kamal’s Viswaroopam to be screened at Cannes film festival


Kamals Vishwaroopam unit lands in Chennai on Jan 20th

Usually, news continue to trickly about actor Kamal Haasan’s films irrespective of whether they are in the making or being planned. Deviating fromt his trend, news about his upcoming film Viswaroopam is hardly given to the press. It is said that Kamal is very ‘secretive’ about the film as he wants to send the film directly to the Cannes Film Festival in France before its theatrical release.

The film, which has U.S.-based model and newscaster Pooja Kumar as Kamal’s heroine, also has a significant role for playback singer-turned-actress Andrea Jermaiah. The shoot has reportedly progressed upto its climax. In Kamal’s own words, “I’m planning to wrap up the entire shooting of the film in a month’s time from now and intend to send it to Cannes Festival. A formal announcement in this regard would only be made later.

“My first priority is to complete the film. I’m in constant touch Christian Jean, the organizer at the Cannes Festival. We’re planning to make Viswaroopam compete in the main category itself. Jean has also assured me that he’d consider adjusting the date of screening of my film to ensure that the film gets screened during the festival,” says Kamal.

In case this happens, Kamal’s Viswaroopam would become the first-ever Tamil film to be directly participating in the main category. It’d be another jewel in the crown of diamonds worn by Kamal!
