Actor Vishnu Vishal is currently working on a film titled Kathanayagan which is being directed by debutante Muruganantham. The film features Catherine Tresa in the lead role and is expected to hit the screens in September this year. The makers released the trailer of Kathanayagan recently which looks quite interesting and has raised the excitement levels around the film. Talking to a news agency, actor Vishnu Vishal spoke about why he prefers to work with newcomers.
“I’m introducing Muruganantham as director in ‘Kathanayagan’. I’m introducing two more new directors via my next two productions as well. I’m enjoying the process of working with newcomers… It’s energetic,” said Vishnu Vishal. His next three upcoming films are all produced by Vishnu himself and are said to have interesting plot lines.
Speaking about what makes working with first-time directors energetic, he said: “They’ve brought me out of my comfort zone. Not long ago, I felt my career was stagnated and it was around the same time I signed ‘Kathanayagan’, and it instantly became a film very close to my heart.”
Vishnu Vishal also has three other films besides Kathanayagan – Pon Ondru Kandein, Silukkuvarupatti Singam and Idam Porul Yaeval. Vishnu also says that Kathanayagan is a very important film in his career because he has done many new things in the film. “Kathanayagan is an important film in my career. Director Muruganandham has made me do a lot of things which is not my cup of tea,” added Vishnu Vishal.
