Vishal is currently riding high on the success of Mark Antony and narrated an interesting incident from the shooting of the film. Vishal shared how he and his co-actor SJ Suryah escaped a crash narrowly. Talking to the media on Wednesday, Vishal said, “We were shooting for a sequence and it involved me and Suryah sir. Both of us were standing on our marks and the truck, which was approaching us, lost control. We stood there frozen. I don’t know who prayed for me because, as I saw the truck driving towards us, it suddenly made a turn and crashed on the side, sparing both Suryah sir and me, and we came out of it without a single scratch. At that instance, I felt like I went to hell and came back.”
“I requested that everyone on the set give me some time so that I could make sense of what happened and calm myself down because, having survived the crash, I was in a trance,” Vishal added.
Vishal’s last film Laththi directed by A Vinoth Kumar received poor reviews from the audience and critics. Sunaina, Prabhu, Munishkanth and Pn Sunny acted in the film produced by Rana Productions.
