Actor-producer Vishal is busy with the release of his upcoming Tamil crime thriller Thupparivaalan, slated to hit the screens on September 14. In the film, Vishal plays a suave detective and the most interesting part is that the story is based on real-life case files of a detective.
Unlike Vishal’s regular commercial outings, this project is believed to be his first outing in a long time sans any commercial elements including songs. Prasanna, who was last seen in Mysskin’s Anjaathe, is expected to play Vishal’s partner and it is being rumoured that they will be portrayed as the local version of Sherlock and Watson pair.
In an interaction with media ahead of the release of Thupparivaalan, Vishal has confirmed he will be starring in the Tamil remake of NTR’s Telugu blockbuster Temper. However, he will finish shooting for Sandakozhi 2 and Irumbuthirai before he can even commence work on the remake, which was originally supposed to be done by Simbu.
NTR played a foul-mouthed cop with no morals in Temper, and he developed six-pack abs for his role. Kajal Aggarwal played the leading lady while Prakash Raj played the antagonist.
The project might take off next year and it will see Vishal in a chiseled avatar. He is expected to shed weight and build a muscular frame to essay the character. A director is yet to be finalised for the remake, which will be bankrolled by Vishal Film Factory. Vishal has also confirmed that he will produce another film with Mysskin and it might happen next year.
