Vishal’s ambition is to become a great Director. He started his career as assistant director with action king Arjun. He stated that if given chance he would like to cast actor Vijay to be his movie hero.
Actor Vishal, who has created a major impact in the Tamil industry with his films has created an equally good market for himself even in Tollywood with his dubbed films becoming hits. Recently, he was also victim to news that he would be the replacement for hit actor Vijay in the Tamil industry which did not go well with the star or his fans. Immediately, Vishal explained saying that, he never gave any such statement and the fact of the matter is Vijay is his senior in college and they are good friends. Vishal also said that, Vijay is his favorite actor and he can never imagine even competing with Vijay in any aspect. Well Vishal, when you become a big star, you need to handle controversies too...
One of the highlights of Sathyam is Chellamae Chellamae...., a steamy hot, erotic song picturised on actor Vishal and actress Nayantara. It is said to be the hottest song ever seen in Tamil Cinema, where the lead pair will lip lock in many scenes throughout the song in seductive costume. After shooting the song, there is a hot gossip rounds in the industry that Nayan and Vishal are in deep love and the pair is going places and attending parties. Initially, Nayan denied all these gossips but after a stage she is keeping mum on this matter. But Vishal reacted sharply. In an interview he told that it is only media people, who spread such a gossip in the Industry. "Many a times I categorically denied that there was no intimacy or even friendship between me and Nayan. We did the role like an intimate couple just for a song. Our onscreen chemistry worked out well. That's all. Nayanthara is not my lover. Please be cleared on this." says Vishal.
Vishal is known for his professionalism. He is always on time at his shooting spot and producers praise him for his dedication. In real life to he has not been linked to any actress till now. Yes there have been rumours of his affair with Priyamani and Nayantara but these gossips were sporadic at the best. But this seems to be changing now. The buzz is that during the shooting of his upcoming movie opposite sexy Shriya Saran, he has got a bit too much impressed by the hot actress. They could be seen spending long time together and used to chat a lot.
