American actress Pooja Kumar will soon be seen playing Kamal Haasan’s wife in Vishwaroop 2, a film that has also been directed and produced by the veteran actor.

Talking about her experience working with him, Pooja says, “I am still nervous; it’s nerve-wracking working with him. He is a very demanding director, but at the same time, he makes you feel comfortable. He keeps you on your toes.”

“He will not give up unless he gets the scene right, and he knows how to switch on and off. I give him credit for all these things because he knows all the different aspects of filmmaking,” she adds.

Pooja is thrilled with the way the film has shaped up, the action sequences in particular. “We have shot the film in five different countries. It has action, romance and drama; but its action quotient is especially high. It will be a fun to watch, and a new experience for the audience,” she says.

The film, a sequel to the 2013 hit Vishwaroopam, has been shot in Tamil and Hindi, and it has also been dubbed in Telugu. Apart from Kamal and Pooja, it stars Shekhar Kapur, Waheeda Rehman, Rahul Bose, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Jaideep Ahlawat, Nasser, Anant Mahadevan, Yusuf Hussain and Rajendra Gupta. The film is slated for release on August 10.
