Will Kamal and Selva get ‘Viswaroopam’?

The title has not yet been acquired from Padmalaya Pictures

Reports suggest that ace director Selvaraghavan is planning to name his upcoming project with Kamal Haasan Viswaroopam. The makers have finalised the script and a 100-day shoot has been planned. But all’s not well with the title. Padmalaya Pictures, the production house that owns the rights to the title Viswaroopam (a 1980 Tamil flick), has not yet announced its willingness to give it to Selva.

Sonakshi Sinha has already confirmed that she will be playing the female lead opposite Kamal in the film, which is reportedly a remake of the Hollywood superhit, Hannibal. Anthony Hopkins and Julianne Moore played the lead roles in the original.

Viswaroopam’s shooting is expected to start in April in Hyderabad, Chennai and London. The film will be made simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
