Vishal filed the nomination yesterday for the RK Nagar constituency and paid tributes to formers CMs MGR and Kamarajar. Vishal also visited the memorial of yesteryear legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan and paid tributes to him. While top actors like Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth have been hinting at a political entry, Vishal takes the plunge into politics without much discussion and buzz around his entry.
Vishal had said that he can’t be sitting and watching, and instead would want to do something for people of Tamil Nadu who deserve a lot more than what is being done for them. Vishal had also said that he draws inspiration from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and India’s former Presidnt Late APJ Abdul Kalam.
