If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, the theatrical trailer of actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2 might be released on his birthday on November 7.

The film’s composer Ghibran on Friday confirmed via a live video chat with his fans that the trailer can be expected very soon. Sources close to Kamal have confirmed about the plans to release the trailer on the star’s birthday; however, nothing has been finalised yet.

The long delayed sequel to Vishwaroopam, which stars Kamal as an Indian spy, also stars Rahul Bose, Andrea Jeremiah and filmmaker Shekhar Kapur in pivotal roles.

Sources from Kamal's camp have confirmed that the pending work on the project will be finished this month and if everything goes as planned, the film might hit the screens this Christmas.

It’s only after bringing Vishwaroopam 2 to the screens, will Kamal revive Sabash Naidu, a spin-off based on the popular character from Dasavatharam. The project was stalled last year after Kamal fell from his office stairs and fractured his leg.

Post Sabash Naidu, Kamal is expected to work on a bilingual film titled Thalaivan Irukkiran. According to a statement released during the launch of Thalaivan Irukkiran in 2015, it was announced that the film will be made in Hindi as well and will be titled Amar Hain.

While Kamal will play the antagonist, Saif Ali Khan was supposed to play the main lead. Kamal was supposed to return to Bollywood with this project after 18 years and he had planned to write and direct the project.

Talking about his role, Haasan had said in a statement in 2015: “My character though not that of a conventional antagonist, would present a point of view that is far from ordinary.” Kamal, who recently made his television debut as the host of Tamil reality show Bigg Boss, also has Indian 2 with director Shankar in his kitty, and the project will roll from next year.

The project will only go on the floors after the filmmaker is completely relieved from 2.0 while Haasan is expected to wrap up Vishwaroopam 2 and Sabash Naidu. The pre-production of Indian 2, rumoured to be made on a budget of Rs. 200 crore, will begin from February 2018. Amidst all these film commitments, Kamal is also rumoured to be taking a political plunge very soon and he might he even float a new party.
