Vishal will be next seen in Laththi, an action packed pan-Indian film, which is directed by debutant director Vinod Kumar and produced by Ramana and Nandha under the Rana Productions banner. Sunaina of Enai Noki Paayum Thota fame has been roped in to play the female lead in the film. This marks the second time Vishal is being paired up with Sunaina as the duo has previously worked together in 2013's action thriller Samar. Laththi has also brought in several well known faces to play crucial roles. Yuvan Shankar Raja has been left in charge to score the music for the movie which will make it the 12th time he will be associated with Vishal on a project.

The crew of Laththi has been shooting in Hyderabad for quite some time now as it was their last schedule for the movie. Vishal suffered an injury mid shoot which delayed their shooting schedule but he bounced back and came out strong at the very end and therefore continued as soon as he possibly could. Now, the team has successfully wrapped up all their portions of the film to be shot in Hyderabad. They are now on the move to commence shooting for the second part of the last schedule which will take place in the home turf that is Chennai from April 24 onwards.

Vishal will be seen playing the role of a cop in this upcoming action thriller which is said to involve many high-octane action scenes. The film will supposedly be about a police constable who gets trapped in a building with his 10 year old child. How they escape from the building surrounded by a group of the enemy forms the crux of the story. This is the first time that we will be seeing Vishal play a bit elderly role in a film.
