The Regional Censor Board in Chennai cleared actor-politician Kamal Haasan’s upcoming film Vishwaroopam II by awarding it an ‘U/A’ certification, thus depriving school-going students from watching it sans parental direction.
Sequel to Kamal Haasan’s 2013 hit film Vishwaroopam, Vishwaroopam II was to release in 2015 itself but was lying in cold storage for close to three years. Kamal is keen to release the film in theatres. Most parts of the sequel had been shot along with the prequel and the remaining sequences were filmed later. The post-production of the film was completed recently after which the film was sent to the Censors.
Censors have now awarded an ‘U/A’ certification to the film which would have to be certified separately for television viewers as and when it is broadcast on TV.
To be released as a summer bonanza after the strike by the film industry (which commenced yesterday) is over, Vishwaroopam II has Kamal Haasan, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Shekhar Kapoor and Rahul Bose in the lead and has music by M. Ghibran. Kamal has produced and directed the film.
