Vishal in Villain

Actor Vishal—who is one of the most popular stars in Tamil cinema—will soon be making his Mollywood debut with the eagerly-awaited ‘Villain’ and adding a new dimension to his career. During a recent chat with a leading daily, director B Unnikrishnan praised the star and said that his sharp features and towering personality make him the right choice for the role.

“I have been impressed with Vishal’s work — in particularly his film Avan Ivan. He has typical Dravidian features, his tall height and sharp features lending a distinct personality. The role demanded an actor of his stature,” he added.

The director went on to add that ‘Villain’ has a strong emotional quotient and highlights how everyone has shades of grey.

“This is not a mass entertainer.  Villain is an emotional thriller. I have been intrigued by issues happening around and wondered what is it to be a law enforcer. Does being a law enforcer always make one ethically correct?” he added

Well, these are some nice revelations and are bound to add to the curiosity surrounding ‘Villain’. Slated to hit screens on Oct 27, the film will see Vishal lock horns with veteran superstar Mohanlal and has created a buzz amongst fans courtesy its gripping trailer. Besides Vishal-Lalettan, it also features Hansika Motwani and Manju Warrier in the lead.

So, will Vishal be able to impress us with his bad guy act in ‘Villain’? Tell us in the space below.
