According to her, this has made the situation much worse and as of now, she is not sure about the future of the film. She added that the current situation is much the same as that of politics. She and the director, Misha, were all set for the film, but someone else is trying to stop the film from being played on the big screen.

As per the actress, Tomb Raider 2 is not coming up as the film faces several political and business reasons. And because of this, the film is not expected to come out for a while. Vikander said that the future of the film is not in her hands and she has nothing to do with it.
