VISHAL’S POLITICAL STINT IN 2017
Vishal tried his hand in politics in 2017. His nomination was rejected on the grounds that only eight proposers had validly proposed Vishal’s candidature instead of the mandatory 10. Back then, he had exclusively told IndiaToday.in that “democracy has been mocked and targeted” adding that he was surprised at the rejection of his nomination. “The rejection was a big surprise to me; my papers were in order. I didn’t forge any signatures. Rules were flouted. I am dejected as democracy has been mocked,” Vishal told us.
Work-wise, Vishal will be next seen in Mark Antony, and is also planning to turn director for the sequel of Thupparivalan.
