With Bigg Boss Tamil inching towards the finale, Haasan will be left with a few films to focus on. He informs the publication that the second installment of Vishwaroopam is in the post production phase and shall be hitting the theaters shortly.

Apart from the crime thriller, the shooting for his forthcoming trilingual Shabash Kundu shall also resume. The makers had to stall the film for a period of approximately six months after Haasan fractured his leg in an accident.

However, after having fully recovered from his injuries, he is ready to take on the film again. A long schedule will be required to complete the film.

Sounding confident about his imminent entry into politics, he says he needs to free himself of all his cinematic responsibilities because "there is no question of a holiday or postponement once you declare you are in politics."
