Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan produced and acted in 'Vikram' directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj which has become the all time blockbuster hit in Tamil cinema. Not one to bask in past glory the legendary actor flew to the United States a couple of weeks back.

Kamal met the funtionaries of his political party Makkal Needhi Maiam in the Bay Area in California and charted out future plans. But his primary goal for the visit is to prepare for the shooting of 'Indian 2' which resumes after a long delay on August 24th.
