The buzz in trade circles is that Vishal is the fastest rising action hero who has the potential to be the new Vijay!

A top director told “Believe me; I see a spark in Vishal which was there in Vijay who too looked gawky when he started off and nobody ever thought that he would emerge as a superstar. Vishal has the same height, his action sequences are amazing and he is hard working. The guy has typical Dravidian looks and his pleasant manners are being appreciated by the masses He will go places”.

His Sandakozhi collections in B and C stations is better than Ghajini. This youngster managed to become the latest sensation in Kollywood, amidst stiff competition from the current breed of heroes with the right connections.

Vishal’s family too has filmi connections as his father GK Reddy was one of the veteran producers of Tamil and Telugu films having made quite a few films with top actors like Sivaji Ganesan. And now Reddy and brother Vikram are going all out to promote Vishal, who is concentrating more on story and presentation of the films that he is signing.

A graduate in Visual communications from Loyola College Vishal’s next film is Thimiru directed by Tarun Gopi and then Sivapathigaram with noted director Karu Palaniyappan. He is also likely to do a film with action director Hari.
