When this dark and handsome hero entered the film scene with A.R. Gandhikrishna’s Chellame, everyone, including industry experts and audiences, sensed the arrival of an unusual hero. Vishal definitely did not share an identity with any of his industry counterparts. He was tall, dark and handsome; above all the hero traits, there was an easy charm and a down-to-earth quality in his personality that appealed to his fans and audiences. As his successive films like Tamirabharani, Malakottai and Satyam became hits, gradually, Vishal’s individualistic style too came to the fore. At one time, he was compared with Ilayathalapathy Vijay for the commercial formula he used in his films. What is Vishal’s take on his success as a trend-setting hero?
“I don’t want to offer competition to any hero. I have a style of my own and my goal is to satisfy both young and adult audiences alike,” says Vishal. On films and formulae, he says, “Heroism will definitely succeed; but there has to be a strong script to back the macho qualities of a winning hero. My upcoming film Thoranai has made use of the above mantra and it will surely be a top grosser.”
Let us wait and see if Vishal’s expectations come true in Thoranai.
