One of the highlights of Vishwaroopam was the awesome camerawork of Sanu John Varughese. Now due to personal reasons Sanu has opted out of Vishwaroopam 2. He has been replaced by another Malayale cameraman Shamdat Sainuddeen who did Malayalam films like Rithu & Marykundoru Kunjadu.
Shamdat also did the cinematography of critically acclaimed Telugu films like Avakayi Biryani and Prasthanam. He has also done Saahasam, which will be released soon. Kamal is said to have been impressed by his work.
So the young Shamdat is now in Bangkok shooting for Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2, a sequel to Vishwaroopam. V2 has music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and stars Kamal Haasan, Rahul Bose, Pooja Kumar and Andrea.
