The Rs 95 crore espionage thriller was originally scheduled to release in Tamil and Telugu on 25 January but it got banned following protests by Muslim groups. The ban was later lifted.

Vishwaroopam narrates the story of a Muslim Indian agent living in the US in disguise, on a secret assignment to stop a probable terror attack. It stars Kamal Haasan, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Shekhar Kapur, Rahul Bose and Jaideep Ahlawat.

The film's Hindi version, Vishwaroop, released worldwide on 1 February. It collected Rs 11.55 crore in its opening weekend, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
