The blockbuster star shared that the video was a special treat, which took him by surprise, and revealed that he was left astonished by the gesture. Reposting the Mark Antony glimpse on X, Vishal wrote, "Well, there is nothing more in life than being hit by a surprise & especially for your birthday.

The Mark Antony glimpse shows a few big moments featuring Vishal in his look for his role in the film directed by Adhik Ravichandran of Trisha Illana Nayanthara (2015) fame. The upcoming film produced under Vinod Kumar's Mini Studio banner is scheduled to open in cinemas on September 15 ahead of the Vinayagar Chathurthi festivities and expectations are high after an intriguing and action-packed teaser was released a while back. The Mark Antony teaser showed Vishal and co-star SJ Suryah as gangsters, with the story then revealed taking the course of a time-travel adventure when they come across a telephone.
Mark Antony will see Vishal and SJ Suryah alongside an ensemble star cast featuring the likes of Ritu Varma of Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal (2020) fame playing the female lead, while Jailer star Sunil, Selvaraghavan, Abhinaya, Redin Kingsley, Y. G. Mahendran, among others appearing in key roles, with the songs and the background composed by National Award winner G. V. Prakash Kumar. Check out the glimpse of Vishal's Mark Antony below:
