The 57-year-old actor screened his new film Vishwaroop to
Hollywood producer Barrie M. Osborne, of the Lord of the Rings

hopefully I'll be doing something in Hollywood," said Hassan.
Meanwhile the actor-director is gearing up to release his new
film Vishwaroop, a spy thriller made simultaneously in Tamil and
"The content of the film is such that it
demanded a larger audience, so we made the film in both
languages. The basic premise of the film is to get the audience
to theatres, so that the people who have invested in the film,
including me, can rake in the moolah," he said.
The film has an unusual star cast comprising Indian-American
actress Pooja Kumar, Tamil actress Andrea Jeremiah and actors
Rahul Bose and Sandeep Jamwal. Hassan himself stars in the lead
"I was not looking for stars in the film, I wanted talent. Also
a person starring in a role should suit it, that goes for me as
well. We chose Pooja after a looking through a number of other
actresses. Rahul prepared for one and a half months for his
role, working on his look and Tamil accent, I am very pleased
with him," said Hassan.
