If you are a fan of the much-loved Vishal then we have some awesome news for you. The popular actor is set to file his nomination for the RK Nagar bypoll today. Prior to doing that, he paid tribute to yesteryear superstar Sivaji Ganesan and visited his memorial. He also visited the statues of former CMS MGR and Kamarajar, paying a heartfelt tribute to them. As expected, Vishal’s actions created a buzz amongst his fans and on the social media.
In case you did not know, the RK seat fell vacant when Jayalalitha passed away in December. The bypoll is scheduled to take place later this month and will see Vishal contest as an independent candidate.
Interestingly, sometime ago, Vishal had dropped a major hint about his political ambitions and said that he would take the plunge at the right time.
“My straight-forward answer is, yes, if the need arises, I’ll come to politics. There’s nothing wrong in it. In fact, people in power have approached me to join them in the past. At the same time, I’m not nurturing a secret ambition to get there or consider politics as an alternative career,” he had told a leading daily.
On a related note, Vishal is currently working on ‘Irumbi Thirai’ and ‘Sandakozhi 2’. ‘Irumbi Thirai’ is touted to be an action-thriller and also features Samantha Akkineni in the lead. ‘Sandakozhi 2’ is an action-drama and also has Keerthy Suresh in the lead.
So, do you think Vishal will be able to win the bypoll? Let us know in the space below.
