Young hero Vishal, made a successful impression in Tollywood, with some decent hits like Palnadu. But there after, he could not sustain the craze, as most of his films did not perform well at the box office. He is now back as a producer with the Tamil flick Naan Singapu Manidan. This film is being dubbed in Telugu as Indrudu, and is slated to hit the screens soon. We caught up with Vishal for detailed chit chat. Let’s see what he has to say.
Q) Tell us some thing about your role in Indrudu ?
A) I play the character of a narcoleptic, which who has a sleeping disorder. The story is a revenge drama based on various emotions, and how does a person with such disorder overcomes his goals.
Q) Being a action hero, don’t you think you have taken a risk with this film ?
A) When you try something new there is always risk involved. This film also has action but with a different kind. After I heard the script, I found it very challenging to portray a character like this. That is why took the risk and went ahead with this film.
Q) The posters and lip lock scenes have created quite a buzz for this film. What do you have to say about this ?
A) Yes there are some glamorous scenes in the movie. But all of them have a meaning in the film, which you know only when you will see the movie.
Q) The rumours surrounding your alleged affair with Lakshmi Menon have caused quite a stir. How much is this true?
A) Every actor goes though these phases in their career. As we have done two back to back films, these rumours have been created. By the way, Lakshmi Menon is just 18 years old, and I would be put in jail if I marry her now. All this is part and parcel of showbiz, and I don’t pay much importance to these.
Q) How is your life as a producer ?
A) Life is so busy and I have no personal time. Both of my productions fared well, and I wish to continue to make films even with different heroes here after.
Q) Any reason for producing this film with UTV ?
A) The experience of my previous film Palnadu, took a toll on me heavily. I was single handedly involved in many activities. So this time around, I thought that a corporate house would deal with all these problems well.
Q) What about your upcoming films ?
A) My next with Shruthi Haasan will go on floor on the 16th of this month.
