Vishal Krishna Reddy Facts

  1. He took his bow in the Tamil film industry as an assistant to the film director Arjun Sarja in his 2001 romantic drama film Vedham. While working there, he was noticed by a producer who signed him up for an acting role in the romantic thriller film Chellamae (2004). Vishal joined the prominent theatre group Koothu-P-Pattarai to prepare for the role.
  2. His older brother, Vikram Krishna Reddy, has served as the producer in several of Vishal’s films.
  3. Vishal launched a film production, distribution, and music company in 2013 named Vishal Film Factory. The company is based in his hometown of Chennai and primarily produces and distributes Tamil-language films. It releases songs and music under the brand name V-Music.
  4. He started an anti-piracy cell in 2014 to fight against the rampant illegal business of distributing new films online.
  5. In October 2015, Vishal was elected as the General Secretary of the Nadigar Sangam, a union of film, stage, and television actors in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. He had previously started a popular movement protesting against the inefficiencies of the previous presiding committee of the union.
  6. He has always been outspoken against the issues affecting the Tamil film industry and was once expelled from the Tamil Film Producers’ Council after making objectionable remarks against the council’s members. However, in April 2017, he returned to win its general body elections and got elected as the President of the council.
  7. In October 2018, he made his television debut as the host of the Tamil-language celebrity talk show titled Sun Naam Oruvar, which aired on Sun TV.
  8. Vishal tried his hand at politics when he filed nomination papers to run as an independent candidate in the by-polls for the RK Nagar constituency in Chennai. The position had been vacated after the death in December 2016 of Jayaram Jayalalithaa who was a heavyweight politician and had served as the Chief Minister of the State of Tamil Nadu. His decision came as a surprise to fans, major political parties, and members of the entertainment industry alike. However, his political journey was abruptly stalled after his nomination was rejected by the electoral authorities.
