The film deals with terrorism as its plot, as has been revealed by the trailer. Kamal Haasan has said, “My film is neither about terrorism nor Islam. It won’t even hurt any community for that matter. The story traverses through the adversities of war, and, therefore it may appear as though it’s about terrorism, but it’s not."

He added “Vishwaroopam revolves around a marriage of convenience and the desire of the wife to spy on her dancer husband to find an excuse to leave him. This results in wires getting cross connected and all hell breaks loose”.

Kamal Haasan has written the story of this film ad has also directed it. The film has been co-produced by him along with PVP cinemas. Akshara Haasan, who is the younger daughter of Kamal Haasan also joined the crew of this film as an assistant director.
