This latest meeting with Vijay will no doubt be an unforgettable one for Vishal, who will be looking to hit the bullseye with his Mark Antony. Fans will know that the Irumbu Thirai actor is an ardent fan and has often expressed his admiration for the Tamil superstar in various interviews over the years. As a matter of fact, blockbuster Tamil filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj had last year approached Vishal to appear in a key role in his film, Leo, starring Vijay in the lead role, which is currently being filmed in Chennai. Although he let go of the opportunity due to his ongoing projects, Vishal had revealed sometime back that he hopes to narrate a story to Vijay and direct him in a film in the future.
Vishal's Mark Antony is one of the most-awaited films of 2023 and sees the actor sharing screen space with SJ Suryah, who recently wrapped up filming his portions, with the team holding a special celebration event sometime back. Coming out under the Mini Studios banner, the film also stars Ritu Varma as the female lead, followed by an ensemble cast featuring the likes of Selvaraghavan, Telugu actor Sunil of Pushpa: The Rise fame, Nadodigal actress Abhinaya, veteran actors 'Nizhalgal' Ravi and Y. Gee. Mahendran, while the music is composed by National Award winner G. V. Prakash Kumar. Apart from Mark Antony, Vishal also has in his lineup the highly-anticipated Thupparivaalan 2, which marks his directorial debut, and the recently-announced Vishal 34 under Hari's direction.
