There can be no denying that the past few months have been extremely eventful for Tamil star Vishal. In October, he added a new dimension to his career when his maiden Mollywood film ‘Villain’ became a hit at the box office despite getting mixed reviews. In the crime-thriller, it was directed by B Unnikrishnan and saw him share screen space with the legendary Mohanlal. Talking about the film’s success, he had said that its ‘winning script’ helped it work at the ticket window.
“When the story was narrated by Unnikrishnan, I knew it had a winning script. Now it has been proved with its success,” he had added.
Speaking about working with ‘Lalettan’, he had said that it was ‘surreal’ moment for him and proved to be a learning experience.
“Face to face with him, the intense dialogues and the off-screen experience, it was all surreal for me. He is an actor who emotes through his eyes, and very accommodating too. I have seen very few superstars who give so much scope for co-artists to perform and outscore. Hats off to him, for his maturity and dedication to the profession,” he had told a leading daily.
While he found success professionally, lady luck did not smile upon him personal life. Recently, he had declared that he would contest the RK Nagar bypoll as an independent candidate and begin a new chapter in life. However, his nomination papers got rejected and his political career failed to take off. Shortly after receiving this setback , he wrote an open letter to the people of Tamil Nadu and promised that he would return to politics soon.
“I thank all the good-hearted people in RK Nagar, across Tamilnadu and across India including the press, the police, the advocates, political leaders, my fans, friends, family and all well-wishers who supported me and stood by me. I will continue to serve the people and fight for democracy and will return to politics in full swing,” he added.
