"We're planning to release Vishwaroopam 2 first. Then, Sabash Naidu. If I reveal the title of my next film, people may think that I'm using the current political scenario. However, I had registered the title four years back. My next film is Thalaivan Irukkiraan," the actor reportedly told Vikatan.

Ramesh Bala, film trade analyst, posted about the same on Twitter:

Two months back, in May, Haasan had also shared poster of his upcoming Vishwaroopam 2, saying that the film's production would kick start some time soon. It is reported to be a spy thriller written and directed by Kamal Haasan, who plays a RAW agent in it. The film also stars Rahul Bose, Pooja Kumar and Andrea Jeremiah in important roles, and is slated to release in 2017.​

His other project Sabash Naidu is also in the pipeline. It is reported to be a spin-off of Haasan's character Balram Naidu which featured in his super-hit film, Dasavatharam (2008).

The India Today report also suggests that Haasan had previously announced that Thalaivan Irukkirran would be reportedly titled Amar Hai also featuring  Saif Ali Khan in a leading role. It was initially planned to be made in two languages — Hindi and Tamil. However, no concrete information is available regarding Khan's presence in the film. The film is expected to kick start some time during next year.

Thalaivan Irukkiraan, is supposed to be a political thriller which would be set in the backdrop of politics and underworld. Apparently, Haasan himself is penning down the script.

Haasan is currently busy shooting for his super-hit reality show Bigg Boss, the Tamil version of the Salman Khan-anchored Hindi reality show. It also marks the debut of the Southern superstar on television.
