I am grateful to Bala for life: Vishal

Actor Vishal was in a jubilant and happy mood as he met the press at a success meet post the release of Avan Ivan on Thursday (July 21) evening. .

Thanking the media for their support in taking the film and his role to the masses, he also spoke at length on his experiences working with Bala, his role as a squint eyed man and his take on awards.

"Bala is not the hard taskmaster he is made out to be. When I met him, we both had misconceptions about each other. But five minutes into our meeting, we realized that we both had been misguided about each other by people. In fact he is a very jovial and flexible person. His only problem is that he doesn't openly talk nor defend himself and just lets the rumours linger on."

Vishal was grateful to Bala for this role and said, "Bala has re-introduced me as an actor. In fact, I can proudly say that I was a hero earlier, but today I stand before you as an actor.”

The immense response to the film in Telugu and Tamil has added a responsibility on his shoulders he added, making him think about his future roles. Speaking about the squint he said, “ No one has done such a role in an entire film anywhere else. So when people look for any such reference for actors, they will encounter only my name in this regard."

The squint look nearly proved fatal during the Navarasa song but Vishal concealed it all from Bala, just in case he might halt the shoot or cut down the role due to the pain Vishal was in.

"It was Arya who was a soothing factor in those painful days of shoot," he revealed. Speaking about competition with Vikram for a National award he added,"It's too early in the year to talk about it. And anyway, I don’t want to think about awards and become tense. I would rather let things happen on its own."

Vishal's next film is titled Prabhakaran, directed by Prabhu Deva. The title will soon be changed, for this remake of the Telugu hit Shauryam.  Vishal plays an ACP in it.
