For the past few days, a clip featuring actor Vishal with piles of the new Rs 2k note has been doing the rounds on social media.
In the video, one can see the actor protesting as someone asks him where he got so much unaccounted money from, and what place this is. A rattled Vishal can be seen asking for the camera to be turned off. He also says that all this is money he had earned while the "I-T official" can be heard repeatedly saying that it's unaccounted money.
"You've shown accounts that you've taken loans. Are you joking?" he asks. Vishal then says, "Ok, what do you want me to do?"
At this point, actor Arjun enters the scene and says the director is ready for the shot and asks what Vishal is doing here. He also ticks off another person, the make-up man, for standing around there. The clip ends with sounds of laughter.
Since the visuals are not very clear, not many have identified actor Arjun correctly. Besides, actor Vishal was in the news recently after a team of tax department officers visited the office of his production company Vishal Film Factory. It was initially reported that the actor was facing raids from the GST Intelligence Agency, though this was corrected later.
Due to this, many social media users have been circulating the clip, citing it as evidence for the black money that Vishal allegedly possesses. Some have also pointed out that has been projecting a very "clean" image while hoarding all this money.
However, the clip, it appears, is from the shooting spot of Irumbu Thirai which features Vishal and Arjun, and captures a lighter moment from the sets. Action King Arjun, after all, is known for his "anti-corruption" roles and it's no surprise that he's part of the cast.
Directed by PS Mithran, the film also features Samantha in the cast. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed the music for this flick.
