Leading Tamil actor-producer Vishal is celebrating Diwali with his latest film, Enemy, which has him sharing screen space with his real life buddy Arya, who plays the antagonist. An out-and-out action thriller, the film has been directed by Iru Mugan fame Anand Shankar under producer Vinod Kumar's Mini Studios banner and has the two stars starring together in a film after a decade when they last appeared in National Award-winning director Bala's Avan Ivan. With Enemy taking a strong opening everywhere and the feedback being largely positive, Vishal watched the film’s first show with fans in a theatre, with a video of the actor now trending on social media in which he is heard speaking about 'Thalapathy' Vijay

The video clip is a short one and has Vishal talking about how he has admired and idolized Vijay since a young age. Vishal says, "Like many of you here, even before I became an actor, my favorite hero, you all know, is 'Thalapathy' Vijay." It is to be noted that this is not the first time the Enemy hero has spoken in high regard of Vijay as he has in various interviews asserted how the superstar had overcome innumerable obstacles throughout the course of his glorious career to reach the heights he has scaled now. Both Vijay and Vishal have also been seen in a number of public appearances together, with their photos and videos going viral. 

Apart from Vishal and Arya in the lead roles, Enemy also stars Super Deluxe fame Mirnalini Ravi playing the female lead, while National Award winners Prakash Raj and Thambi Ramaiah, including Malayalam actress and filmmaker Mamta Mohandas are appearing in pivotal roles. Vishal will next be seen in Veerame Vaagai Soodum, which is slated for a December theatrical release and is currently shooting for Lathi Charge opposite Sunaina. As for Vijay, he is filming his upcoming film titled Beast being directed by Kolamaavu Kokila and Doctor fame Nelson Dilipkumar under the Sun Pictures banner with music by Anirudh Ravichander. After completing Beast, he will kickstart work on the tentatively titled Thalapathy 66 to be directed by Vamshi Paidipally under Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations banner.
