After winning the elections and becoming the President of Tamil Film Producers Council(TFPC), Actor Vishal seems to be on a mission. His priority, as the president, is to eradicate piracy from the industry which is causing huge losses to the producers and distributors. Talking about it the actor says, “Everyone wanted a change, I not only wanted change but wanted to be the change and here I am.”
Talking about how he plans to deal with piracy the actor says, “Now, the battle has begun. The guys who indulge in piracy will have to look for other jobs. I will block each and every possible loophole that gives room for piracy. I have plans to create a separate team to keep a track on movie piracy. Each and every piracy issue will be taken up and addressed. I will work towards a ‘no piracy’ state in Tamil cinema.”
Vishal is also the General Secretary for Nadigar Sangham (Actor’s Association). Speaking about managing both the responsibilities the actor says, “Yes, I will tirelessly work for both. First of all, I don’t want any conflict to arise. It is to avoid such situations that my team and I are here. But unfortunately, if one such situation arises, I will stand for justice.”
Vishal also plans to support those kinds of films who are unable to find theaters to screen them. “So many small films are lying in the cans waiting for a theatrical release. I plan to meticulously work towards their release as many small film producers will benefit from that. Also, our late CM, Jayalalithaa madam had assured that state awards would be announced soon, but that could not happen at that point. So, I will request the government to conduct the award function as soon as possible”, the actor opines.
Vishal has been very vocal and active in ensuring the safety of Tamil cinema. His hard work and transparent work style have brought him to this stature.
